The Barcli Theatre was remodeled and re-opened as the New Strand Theatre on August 31, 1929. It had gone from listings by 1931 when the original Strand/Orpheum Theatre had reopened.

The Strand Theatre is again listed in the Film Daily Yearbook’s 1950-1952 with 950 seats. It had closed by 1955.

The entrance doors to the theater were on Barrett Street and the exit doors were on Clinton Street. The name of the theater was a fusion of these two touching streets making it the distinctive Barcli Theatre. William E. Gladstone was its first manager and it was owned by Lincoln Theatre operator John Walker. Charles H. Travis was the opening projectionist in 1920.
