History of The Strand

For three decades, movie nights at the old Strand Theater at 38  N. Main St. appeared to be a thing of the past as attempts to rescue the building were unable to surmount the obstacles presented by a large, long-neglected building.So it is with great pleasure that the theater’s current owners, Rodney and Lorraine Conard, announce that movies have returned to The Strand!
