Strand Theatre, Caro, MI - auditorium

This small but charming single-screen movie house shows first-run films. Originally opened in the late-1920’s, the Strand Theatre has been remodeled over the years, most recently in 1994. It features a beautifully intact Art Deco style facade and marquee illuminated by neon and lightbulbs.

This one in Popcorn Palaces on page 83 is most like my hometown theatre as it sits on a corner and not between store fronts..the big difference is that this one is still open and was remodeled!

So nice to find this art deco theatre with its beautiful art deco style facade intact and its original marquee with illuminated neon and lightbulbs. I applaud the folks of Caro for keeping their little town theatre looking great after all of these years!

Great news as this art deco is a “cinema treasure”!

The July 15, 1929, issue of The Film Daily said that the Strand Theatre in Caro had been sold to John E. Handy by E. J. Chapman.

There were a couple of other Chapmans associated with the theater business in Caro. The September 24, 1918, issue of Michigan Film Review mentioned a C. Chapman associated with the Temple Theatre at Caro, and another item in the same issue mentioned a Paul Chapman of Caro.

A wonderful art deco classic marquee that should never be changed. Lovely theatre.
