“lots of art house film & shows”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

One of the best things to happen in Rockland...they do everything right except the darn cup holders & there could have been 3 inches more leg room in the seats.
See the films that never get to the multi-plex...also opera and concerts.

“Simply fabulous”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

This old theater has been lovingly restored to provide a showcase for indie art films, HD presentations from the National Theatre and the Met, live music, and the occasional lecture and play. It is one of the Midcoast's treasures.

“Great little theater”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Beautiful atmosphere. Fun place to see interesting movies, etc. Makes you nostalgic for the single screen movie houses of your youth. I guess that shows my age.

“A classic experience”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

I grew up viewing movies in old-fashioned cinemas, and the atmosphere of the Strand brings me back to those good old days. A real ticket booth (yes, it's a little cold waiting in line outdoors in the dead of a Midcoast Maine winter, but it's worth it)--and the ticket seller has actually seen the film and has comments to make! Comfortable seating. EXCELLENT selection of films--lots of foreign and indie movies you just can't see elsewhere. Patrons who know good films. I LOVE this theater.
