In 1916, Michael and Louis Manos leased the Keaggy Theatre from Dr. J.B. Keaggy. An addition 56x60 feet was built as part of a general remodeling of the house, as noted in the January 22, 1916, issue of The American Contractor. Local architect Edward J. Nelson drew the plans for the project. The Manos brothers reopened the house as the Strand Theatre, presenting both movies and vaudeville.

The Manos brothers had entered the exhibition business in 1912, when they took over operation of a Greensburg house called the Lyric Theatre, which they still controlled at least as late as 1918. They also operated a confectionery and ice cream parlor in the Strand Building.
