Brockport Strand Movie Theater

Brockport's Strand Theater - Movies have been shown on this site since around 1910, making it one of the oldest in the country. The building was remodeled in 1946 to the Strand we know today. There are some historical pictures at this site, and here you can see the block walls being started for the original building. My mother worked at the Strand's candy counter in the 50's. The earliest movie I recall seeing there, was the original Star Wars, in 1977. (click for larger view)
