Built for the Saenger Brothers in 1925, the Strand Theater is an ornate palace which originally showed films from its opening on July 3, 1925. In 1970, the Strand Theater was sold to ABC Interstate Theatres. However, by 1977, the Strand Theater was struggling and was sold to the Strand Theatre Corporation, a non-profit organization devoted to saving and restoring the theater.

The Strand Theatre Corporation raised the required funds to redevelop the Strand as a top notch performing arts and stage show venue. It is still in operation today.

Here’s a YouTube video of the Strand complete with music recorded of its original Robert-Morton pipe organ. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQVizYHjHnQ

Want to hear more live organ music at the Strand?? Contact the theatre and let them know! I and several other volunteers are ready and willing to get her back on track!
