Forum Theatre (Official)
Previous Names: Strand Theatre
The Strand Theatre was opened by Universal Pictures in 1926, with seating for 1,262. The theatre features a graceful Neo-Georgian style facade, with four pillasters of light stone over red brick. Over the main entrance is a small pediment with two large windows over it, lighting the lobby. The Strand Theatre was the largest theatre in the Jonesboro area for more than 40 years.
It was acquired by the city of Jonesboro in the late-1970’s and restored to its original beauty and today hosts live performances and community events, now called the Forum Theatre.
Like many theatres, the Forum Theatre allegedly has its very own ghost, which has been nicknamed “Charlie”, which has said to have been more mischevious than scary.
