The Strand a place we visit very frequently. Live shows, better movies and live transmitals from The Metropolitan Opera and The Bolshoi Ballet and so many other special events. We love The Strand!

This was the second time I had attended an event at the Strand, and every time I do there I enjoy the environment as well as the program. The Theater had been remodeled in 2005 and the architect did a fantastic job of bringing the feeling of a 1920's theater to modern day standards. From the front lobby to the... More

Lovely theatre right on main street. Nice concession with Beer and wine. Very clean restrooms and small intimate theatre. We went to see Slaid Cleaves perform. He is a fabulous folk singer that grew up in Maine but now lives in Texas. The acoustics were superior to most venues this size. At one point in the show Slaid and accompanyment... More

We saw the Million Dollar Quartet in this marvelous venue. The show was as spectacular as the theater. If you want a taste of how it was in "the good old days of luxury" visit the Strand and find where the Million Dollar Quartet is playing and go. It's a wonderful show especially in such a classy and unique venue.

If you're headed to Mid Coast Maine, do check out their website for a great collection of music, film and special programs in this beautifully restored theater on Main Street in Rockland. If it's a concert you're headed to, get your tickets early, it often fills up.

I consider myself lucky to live five minutes from The Strand Theatre. The Strand presents a steady stream of quality indie, foreign, and award-winning films to Rockland, as well as live broadcasts in HD from The National Theatre in London and the Met Opera in New York. But best of all are the live concerts. I've seen so many incredible... More

You gotta love a small venue where you can hear great bands and enjoy a beer while doing so. The strand fits the bill to a tee. The seating provides for good views throughout and acoustics are wonderful. You will love the Strand. They also do movies and special events here, but we have only been for concerts.

To those of us of a certain age stepping into the Strand is akin to revisiting our childhood, a time before multiplexes. The physical plant appears to be in wonderful shape. The offerings from movies to simulcasts to live performances run the gamut of tastes. I suspect everyone would find at least one event they'd like to attend. This being... More

I saw Carman last month and am going to see The Barber of Saville tomorrow. Just a real treat here in a smallish town on the coast. I love the fact that because it's streaming you get close-ups of the performers and interviews. Very interesting and really ads to the experience.

We attended a Bob Marley show at the strand in July and loved it! Not only was the atmosphere inviting but it had an old school feel to it. Also for those 21+ you can go upstairs and have drinks while watching the movie or performance. Overall a great place.
