The Strand Theatre opened it's doors April 10, 1916 and has been showing movies continually ever since! In January of 1936 the Strand was purchased by Schine Theatres out of Gloversville, NY and was part of that chain of movie theatres until 1971, when manager George Johnson and his wife Cindy took over. They owned the Strand until retiring in 1994 then Cathy and Jerry Amato took over the helm. In 2002 Ohio Wesleyan University took ownership and helped create the Strand Theatre and Cultural Arts Association, a 501 (c) 3 Non-profit board that currently owns the Strand.
