The Strand Theatre is an old Art Deco style movie theatre was opened in February 1923 with Pat O'Malley in “My Wild Irish Rose”. It originally had a seating capacity of 626. It stayed open as a movie theatre until 2000 when the local multiplex bought it and closed it. In February 2004, the theatre was purchased by a long-time summer resident with plans to restore it and open it again as a movie theatre.
The Strand Theatre reopened July 3, 2005, with a block party, theatre tours, and a screening of the silent movie “The General” starring Buster Keaton. A new marquee was added. During renovations, workers found the 1940’s marquee underneath the recent marquee. The interior was redone and the current main auditorium has 257 seats. The balcony auditorium has 92 seats, and there is Dolby Digital Sound.
The Strand Theatre is placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
