Always check the listings online but they put on some great shows at the Strand Capitol, and the seating is great. Loved being there and enjoying the opportunity to be a part of our great city.

This is a great place to see theater, film and live music. The building is gorgeous and the lobby is perfect for mingling. Terrific programming, especially since Todd Fodgall came on board.

Attended 3 shows here and enjoyed the venue very much. Would go again in a heartbeat. Seat cushions are a little shot and the parking in the area is a little difficult at times

Came later the first time and sat further back (which isn't that far back) and the only problem was the bar was back there and the bartender(s) could care less of a concert going on. Constantly...

The Strand is a smaller venue, the crowd was well behaved and rather quiet, not all that rowdy, all different ages from tweens to senior citizens and you could tell they were there to experience the music. The acoustics... More
