The Strand at Follansbee was in operation by 1927, when the July 8 issue of Motion Picture news named it as one of several houses in the region that had become part of a new co-operateve called Affiliated Theater Utilities Inc.. Among the leaders of the organization were N.D. Dipson and Mike Manos, both of whom would later establish regional theater chains under their own names.

The July 9, 1937 Film Daily had news about the Strand:

“Steubenville, O.— The Strand Theater at nearby Follansbee, W. Va., has been renovated and new Lipman sound system has been installed, according to Joe Huszar, manager.”
The September 27 issue of the same journal had another mention of the Strand, and of two other Follansbee houses:
“Close Follansbee House

“Steubenville, O.— The Royal theater at nearby Follansbee, W. Va. has been acquired under lease by Glen Floyd and Joseph F. Huszar and has been shuttered. Patsy Petrelli was the former operator of the Royal. Floyd and Huszar operate the Roxy and Strand theaters at Follansbee and the Roxy at Monaca, Pa.”
