The Theatre Historical Society archive has the MGM Theatre Report for the Strand; it’s Card # 346. Address is “Main St.” (incorrect). There is an exterior photo dated March 1941. Condition is Good. The report says it’s over 15 years old, was showing MGM films, and had 1,088 seats. The 1940 population was 2,000.

The Boothbay Harbor Comprehensive Plan includes a list of highlights in the town’s history which says that the Strand Theatre was destroyed by fire in 1982. I haven’t found an opening year for the Strand, but it’s listed in the 1932 FDY.
