An essay about movie theaters in the Shenandoah Valley by historian Douglas Gomery says that the 600-seat Home Theatre in Strasburg was opened by the Dalke chain in 1949, as a replacement for their 260-seat Strand Theatre, which they had opened in 1921.

This item from the June 16, 1921 issue of Manufacturers Record must be about the Strand, though it gives a much larger seating capacity which, I suppose, could simply have been a typo:

“Va. Strasburg– Dalke & Linn will erect theater; 60x125 ft.; 2 stories; fireproof; steel ceiling; seating capacity 750.

In 1970, the Home was operated by Dalke’s Valley Theaters.

The Strasburg was previously the Home. Here is a 1989 photo by Michael Putnam:
