amazing! wish I could timewarp to here
Obsessed with this building. Hoping to get it nominated
uploading photos now
I agree that this listing should be changed to closed. It appears to be currently available for rent: https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/1027-1035-Brighton-Beach-Ave-Brooklyn-NY/20301550/
I used to frequent this theater as a child in the 90s. So sad to learn of its demise.
This looks to have sadly been demolished and turned into a high-rise apartment by about 2017.
full demolition permit issued for the strand. https://li.phila.gov/property-history/search/permit-detail?address=1200-02%20W%20GIRARD%20AVE&Id=ZP-2021-008813
what’s the status with this beauty? looks incredible!
any interior photos? very curious!
interesting fact: the original chandelier and some other facets of this theater were relocated to Ashland, Oregon: https://oregoncabaret.com/about-us/history/
such a travesty that this was demolished. so frustrating
i hope someone saves the Roxy! fond memories here
anyone have any photos from when the Strand was active, pre-1958?
any relation to The Strand at 1200 West Girard Avenue?
@ EsseXploreR, were you able to obtain entrance to the inside? any idea when it might be demolished?
I uploaded some shots from Google Street View. If this is indeed the original theater, as I surmise, then it has since been demolished, seemingly between August 2014 - July 2017.
I will be taking updated photos of this location and posting soon
Bathroom was accessible seemingly from the auditorium. The other bathroom was on the opposite side of the room.
This was in the auditorium
why would they ever demolish this. a travesty!
Apologies for the vertical video: https://youtu.be/3BFOfYsavXg
heartbreaking. I hate developers. I already hated livenation, but now I REALLY do
Currently a Foot Locker. I wonder if any of the original interior is buried in there underneath drop ceilings
This is now Repo Records
Devastated to report that after inspecting the site myself today, I was wrong. Demolition has indeed started on the back half of the building. The facade is still intact. I suppose it’s too late at this point :(
