Art films and documentaries are here. The up stairs has a bar, I have been told.
Never made it upstairs yet.
We went Christmas to see Downton Abby. It was a costume contest and a
fun night. Here's hoping everyone in the area will jump on board and Join this
lovely Theater as a new member.
They have Live shows too.
Today, the Strand has a National Historic Landmark designation from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Ida and Joseph Dondis built the theater in 1923 and the Dondis family operated it for over 60 years. Today their granddaughter, Jo Dondis, is chair of the Friends of the Strand Theatre Board.
"Friends of The Strand Theatre is so grateful to the Simmons family for this gift. Not only did Ellen and Matt lovingly restore the building, they also supported the theater for ten years, bringing a wide range of cultural and educational programming to this community, " said Dondis. "Now it's the community's turn to step up and support the Strand as we go forward. To that end we'll be offering a membership program in the spring, as well as pursuing grants and fund raising efforts in order to raise one million dollars to generate enough income to sustain the theater."
