The Strand Theatre was on the second floor of a commercial building in this small rural community in Rhode Island. The building was originally named Barber’s Hall when it was built in 1864. Over the century and a half of its existence, various businesses occupied the first floor, including a bank (the vault is still there) while the second floor theatre ran theatrical productions and films from 1917 to about the early 1950s.
What was the theatre is now occupied by an antique store, which takes up the whole building. If you walk upstairs you can see the former stage area and the still-existing projection booth. It appears that the seating capacity might have been in the 400 range.
