“Wonderful gem in the middle of Rockland”
Review of Strand Theater

Strand Theater
Reviewed 17 October 2017 via mobile

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 to be entertained. The Strand Theater offers more independent movies including live ballet and arts programs. Perfect for those of us still enjoy going to see a movie in the theater and don't want to see the boring, ho-hum current Hollywood offerings.

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. And at the hubbys request we went to see Colin Hays who was a foul mouthed delightful Scottish storyteller of songs. Oh and he's the guy from Men at Work which down under is one of my top 80s songs. He sounded awesome and felt very current. I love just a man and his guitar. I think anyone that plays at The Strand will never dissapoint.

Historic theater on Main Street in Rockland. Lots of restaurants around to eat before or after the show. We watched a live comedian and the location is fantastic. They have a wide variety of treats and drinks available. The theater has plenty of seating, but you can see from anywhere you sit. The seats are old-fashioned, and slightly narrow so anyone of a heftier build might be a little uncomfortable. But overall, great location and super friendly staff.
