The moment you walk in the door you are greeted by a legit ticket booth where you buy your reasonably priced movie tickets.. after you buy your $3 popcorn & enter the theatre you are taken back into a time where things were simpler... considering the vintage feeling of this place the sound and projection were excellent.. A special thank you to the owner for creating this experience for us all to enjoy. It was the highlight of my week up here at Schroon Lake. I WILL be back again for sure. God bless you.

Thank LI-Pastor

The Strand is such an amazing theater. It is truly one of the older theaters in the area. It was closed for a bit and then in the early 90s (I think!) it was updated with a new sound system and opened for business.

You can see the old movie projector in the lobby and popcorn boxes waiting for you at the concession.

The owner generally gets one new movie a week and shows it at a set time on the weekends. The seating isn't the most comfortable bit it does just fine for the duration of a movie.

You owe it to yourself to experience The Strand. It's not just about seeing a film, it's about taking in the charm of this movie house.

The Strand finished up their fund raising and hopefully will be showing movies in the summer of 2015 as they go Digital. This is the official meeting place in the town where summer families and local natives meet to enjoy some of the latest film releases. Its a classic theatre that always draws crowds. As they go digital, maybe they''ll consider some other updates as time goes on. Until then we all eagerly await their re-opening.

This was such a great experience and fun place to see a summer movie on a rainy day/night. Would recommend getting your tickets and seats early especially if the weather is rainy

Great Shakespearian adventure. Actors worked hard and pulled off an exciting Tempest experience. We enjoyed the experience in the historic Strand Theaters new stage. A decent crowd and once the word is out I am sure they will act to a full house.

OOHHH NOOO say it ain't soooo! We were going to make a weekend trip to Schroon esp to go to the strand-- My friend Larry has been an audiophile all of his life and a "fine shmankerer" to boot. He is into authenticity and high quality --- Support his theater and he will deliver an awesome product!!!!!!!!!!! - raechel

They had to go dark end of summer 2013 with the mandated transition to digital movie equipment. Larry who runs the theater said the cost was 70000 much to high fir little schroon lake. Rumors have it they got a grant for part of the makeover and are currently having an ongoing fundraiser to raise the rest. Let's hope we see it reopen it was so nice to have. The movies were first run, the prices low( I'm sure that will have to change) and the popcorn delicious.

Schroon Lake is so fortunate to have it's very own movie theater! Thank you to the owners, you do a wonderful job!

A piece of the past but playing the movies we want to see today. Great archetecture and preserved details inside. Worth a ticket just to see the wallpaper.

I have been going to the Strand on and off for many years. IT IS AN INSTTUTION with great memories. Recently I heard the theatre may have to close as new movies are made digitaly which requires very expensive new equipment. I hope someone will start a fund to keep the grad old Strand operating.
