While spending a short time in Rockland, Maine, on a Sunday we decided to check out the local movie theaters. The multiplex cinema had the typical Hollywood movies that don't appeal to those of us who require excellent acting, great scripts and no special effects...More

Beautifully restored venue that gives you the "old movie" experience with new movies, technology and comfort. It also doubles a live stage featuring some great performers.

Great downtown location, the Strand feels like a classic. It offers movies as well as performances. Butter machine wasn't working, but the popcorn was good enough as is.

The Strand has come along way since it's renovation from a two screen movie theater. Every show I've gone to has been fabulous. What I love is the intimacy of it. Maybe as I'm getting older I appreciate the smaller venues more. It's very nostalgic....More

Yes, this renovated/restored theater which enjoys status as a registered historic landmark still does show movies but has also morphed, like much of Rockland, into a venue for unsuspecting events and varied tastes. For example, I spent nearly 3 hours attending a "world premier" movie,...More
