Strand Theatre

The Strand Theatre was opened November 19, 1920. It was billed as “New York State’s Most Beautiful Theatre”. Seating was provided for 1,993. By 1941 it was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp. It was remodeled in 1960 to the plans of architect Drew Eberson and the seating capacity was reduced to 1,693.

The Strand Theatre was still operating as a movie palace by Stanley Warner in May 1965, when The Beatles movie “Help” was screened, supported by a 3 Stooges comedy. In November 1968 it was playing “Bullet” starring Steve McQueen.

It has been demolished and the site is now a parking lot.

Its former manager, Al LaFamme (or was it LaFlamme?), was one of the owners of the Unadilla Drive-In when it opened in 1956.
