News About This Theater
- Jan 19, 2012 — Strand Theatre gets $150K grant
Opened December 29, 1924 as the premier theatre of Plattsburgh, NY, the Strand Theatre lived up to its name. Silent movies were presented at 10 cents with the Strand Theatre orchestra providing accompaniment.
In recent years, however, the theatre deteriorated into running second-run and independent films, as well as rock concerts of local bands. The building was in deplorable condition, and the owners were in debt.
In 2004, the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts purchased the building, and is now beginning a $4-million fund raising effort to restore the theatre as a performing arts center, including the installation of a 1924 Wurlitzer organ.
