Refurbished to its grand days with super good digital sound and viewing. Sit in the front row of the balcony for best effect and be sure to grab the Carmel corn! Also has live performances throughout the year.

The Strand is GRAND - a grand old theater from yesteryear. It is clean and nifty and everything you would expect an old grand theater to be. I wished I lived in the area because I would go to a lot of shows and events. It is an intimate and relaxed theater but it is very well maintained and there... More

We went in January, with the new digital projectors, to see "Philomena" with Judi Dench. The quality of the film was great, although it bothered my mother's eyes and she went to sit further back. Nice sound, nice seats, and they had cup holders. We bought nonpareilles and they weren't too outrageous. Water fountains down in the basement next to... More

Wonderful old theater that puts on top-notch performances and has a feel that is second to none. If time is available- go to the show and take the entire family!

We live in Rockland and frequent the Strand as often as practical - almost without regard for what is playing because it's such a treat to be surrounded by such architecture and craftsmanship. The restoration took place just a year after we moved here and the Strand has improved our quality of life by just being there. I recommend the... More
