Was pleasantly surprised by this York theater. They had spent a couple years refurbishing it, and it was really something; very old school decor. We were at a music venue with a small musical group, and the acoustics were very good. If I lived closer, I would probably join their group to get advance notice on tickets. Nice restaurants nearby,... More

Have been to the Strand for musical, comedy and most recently a Neil Simon play. Great facility with lots of character. The hospitality and atmosphere make it seem like a really special event every time we go. Plenty of parking within a 5 minute walk. Surrounded by some of the best restaurants in York. Get your tickets early. Pricing is... More

This theater is a renovated old movie theater. It is beautiful and great for concerts and theatrical events. It is a great venue to see shows that are often presented in theaters closer to the bigger cities. We have had great Broadway, musical groups and performers come. There are also some great restaurants nearby. It is wonderful to have such... More

It is such a pleasure to soak I the atmosphere of the restored theaters while watching nationally known performers and shows. A good variety each year means something for everyone at affordable prices.

The Strand-Capitol comprises two venues. The Strand is a wonderful venue for concerts, a classic theater. We enjoy Cap Live shows at the Capitol: a smaller setting, seats are less comfortable however, and the beverage stands at the back add some extra noise during shows.

The Strand-Capitol is a charming theater with outstanding productions. It is the cultural star of the York area. The ambiance is striking, the presentations varied and entertaining. There are many fine eating establishments near the venue. As a member of the Performing Arts Center, I thoroughly enjoy the experience of the Strand-Capitol and highly recommend it for all.

We have enjoyed numerous concerts and a couple of shows at the Strand-Capital over the years. This facility is always clean and the staff is very helpful. We never hesitate to travel to the Strand-Capital. The venue is intimate and most of the seating is excellent. The seats are moderately comfortable, they do become a little uncomfortable after an hour... More

We saw The Big Head Blues Club here last Saturday evening and it was terrific..!! The facility was very clean and the staff was very nice. They have a convenience stand offering alcoholic beverages, nonalcoholic beverages and snacks. The restrooms were not only clean but they pipe in the sound so you don't miss anything from the show while you're... More

We see the symphony or guest appearances of renown at the Strand. There isn't a bad seat in the house. It is the pride of York City and County. Our cultural center for film and performance, two facilities in one place..

We (14 of us!) went to see the Shanghai Acrobats perform at the Strand and were enthralled by not only the performance but also by the pleasure of a truly unique local theater beautifully restored and attended by a long loyal staff of local residents guiding us carefully to our seats.
