An interesting item from the March 4, 1916 issue of Moving Picture World says: “Woodstock, Ill.-J. C. Miller, owner of the Princess theater at Woodstock, will open about March 1 his new theater north of his present location, using it about three nights a week for the overflow crowds from the Princess”

This annex was most likely the house called the Strand Theatre. The April 15 issue of MPW said “Woodstock, Ill.-J. C. Miller of the Princess and Strand theaters has booked ‘The Battle Cry of Peace’ for April 30 and May 1.”

The Princess and the Municipal Opera House are the only theaters listed at Woodstock in the 1926 FDY, so the Strand was probably closed by then.
