A Strand Theatre was listed among claimants to damages resulting from an October, 1918, explosion at a munitions plant in Perth Amboy. The list was published by the U.S. Senate in 1919. The operators of the Strand, Counihan & Shannon, received a payment of $159.00 as compensation for broken glass and structural damage.

The Strand was still in operation in 1924, when it was mentioned in an issue of the quarterly publication Liberty. Manager John Bullwinkel had been arrested for violating the town’s Sunday blue law.
