Styles: Colonial Revival
Previous Names: Crown Theater, Strand Theater
The Crown Theater was opened in 1912. In 1919 it was renamed Strand Theater. The "Amesbury" Theater still has its marquee, with the gymnasium sign lit where the movies were once advertised. I could only peek inside, but the terrazzo floors looked great and the auditorium was obviously in one piece, if now denuded of its seats.
Amesbury, Mass. looks to be an up and coming town. Its downtown was once derelict and depressed after the mills closed, but the area has undergone a yuppie conversion and looks just great. Someone could make a few dimes reopening this theater as a theater, despite the competition of "Stage Two Cinema Pub" with "the largest screen in the valley" literally in the Amesbury’s backyard.
