I am interested in finding out more information on the origins of the Stratford. My family, Schneiders, originally built the city block it was housed in and were officers in the Dix Theater Company which included the Stratford. Who currently owns the theater and is there a way I can gain access to the inside for family history purposes? I’m looking for some contact information on current ownership.

Checked it some days ago. The store that occupied the auditorium is now closed.

The building recently reopened as a furniture (+ various stuff) store. Some original deco and curtain still remains inside.

This theater is owned by a church, but still remains vacant. A message for a party remains on the marquee.

Go here for a picture of the theater today and the old interior.
