According to the Prince George Citizen newspaper’s July 18, 1975 edition (on page 19), the Strand was playing a double feature of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Little Cigar Mob until the following Sunday (July 20). The Strand disappeared from the Citizen’s movie listings after that, starting with the July 21 issue (on page 8), so that would indicate that the Strand had closed by then.

The YouTube video states that the Strand Theatre opened in 1926 and was open until 1974.

A photo of the theatre can be seen here and this YouTube video includes photos of the now-demolished theatre; its site is now marked by a historical plaque.
