About
The Strand Theatre, located in downtown Rockland on the coast of Maine, has been entertaining audiences since 1923. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the theater underwent an extensive renovation in 2005, which included new sound and projection equipment, a fully restored interior and exterior, and a bright new marquee. In 2014, the theater became a non-profit organization and is now owned and operated by the Friends of the Strand Theatre. Today, the Strand Theatre is a multi-use venue offering the best of current first-run and independent films, live musical concerts and comedy, simulcasts, educational programs, conferences, and other special events on our stage and screen.

Wonderful Theater in Rockland Maine
Aug 2019
My family and I visited the Strand Theater in Rockland, Maine during our vacation to see a broadcast of "Kinky Boots" from London. The theater is adorable, intimate, and extremely comfortable. The staff is attentive, friendly and very helpful and the concessions included great old fashioned soda pop and delicious traditional favorites. It was a wonderful experience.

THE place for quality films
Feb 2019 • Solo
Saw "Roma" at the Strand Tuesday. With four center rows roped off (why?), I found a seat just ahead in the fourth row from the stage, but this was ideal to become fully immersed in the film and read the subtitles easily. The previews mentioned folk concerts, opera, comedy performances, and other independent films. We appreciate these options! Because most downtown parking has a 2-hour limit, parking for a matinee can be tricky, but I used the public lot off Winter Street. It's slightly past the Center for Maine Contemporary Art and on the opposite side of the street.

Thank you for coming to our show. Those seats were roped off for local students, who were participating in our Education Programming. We hope to see you again in the future!

More the Just a Sweet Community Cinema
Jun 2018 • Couples
We love The Strand! It may not be a multiplex, but it is a community treasure that offers first run films, independent films, Live in HD shows from the Metropolitan Opera in NYC and elsewhere, and live performances and lectures. Seating is comfortable, and there is an upstairs balcony with a small bar (yes!). MidCoast Maine is a great area to visit and to live, and The Strand contributes to this comfortable way of life. Municipal parking lots are conveniently nearby.

A True Band Box of a Theatre.

Wonderful asset and a joy to visit every time. Incredible movies

A Wonderful Old Theatre!
Nov 2017 • Couples
This almost 100-year-old theatre opened a few years after World War I ended! Today, it is refurbished, and shows films, as well as featuring singers and comedy acts—all at very reasonable prices. 

The renovated bathrooms are welcome and the concessions are very good. And the people that work there are friendly, too.

Thank you for the review, I grew up in this town and remember those old bathrooms. Stephen King would have loved them!

Grand old theater, grand selection of movies, and be sure to go to the bathroom
Oct 2017 • Friends
We love going to the Strand in Rockland. This renovated theater is a classic that has been updated to today's standards. It is extremely clean. They show a great selection of current independent movies and air Bolshoi Ballet and the Met Opera. While there, be sure to downstairs to the bathroom. They have a wonderful array of old photos and papers depicting the history of the theater. They need to improve their popcorn, but that's the only drawback from our most recent visit.
