News About This Theater
- Jan 24, 2011 — Ocean City, New Jersey's two theaters are for sale
Although not much to look at today, the Strand Theatre on the Ocean City, NJ Boardwalk at 9th Street, was once a classic Art Deco style theatre with one screen, twin balconies, a silk curtain with King Neptune pictured on it, and backlit movie star portraits built into the lobby walls.
Opening on August 11, 1938, the Strand Theatre was built by William Shriver and was the flagship theatre of the Shriver Theatre chain in New Jersey. By 1941 it was operated by the Strand Theater Co. In 1989, it was converted into a five-plex without the original lobby (now a store).
The Strand Theatre was closed by Frank Theatres in 2013. In the summer of 2016 plans were proposed to convert the building into a pizza restaurant. It was gutted internally and the restaurant opened in spring of 2017.
