The Strand Theatre opened in 1926, with seating for about 700. The theater features a graceful Neo-Georgian style facade, with four pillasters of light stone over red brick. Over the main entrance is a small pediment with two large windows over it, lighting the lobby. The Strand Theatre was the largest theater in the Jonesboro area for more than 40 years.
It was acquired by the city of Jonesboro in the late-1970s and restored to its original beauty and today hosts live performances and community events, now called the Forum Theatre.
Like many theaters, the Forum Theatre allegedly has its very own ghost, which has been nicknamed “Charlie”, which has said to have been more mischevious than scary.
