Review of Strand Theater

Strand Theater
Reviewed 6 December 2017 via mobile

Wonderful asset and a joy to visit every time. Incredible movies
yes but outrageous live music and events. Imagination is rampant at this theatre and it's a great place to watch. I like to watch. Seats. Sound. Snacks. People. Intelligence. Great value.
It is a great place to watch and experience. I am thankful for this
theatre.

Thank David G

This almost 100-year-old theatre opened a few years after World War I ended! Today, it is refurbished, and shows films, as well as featuring singers and comedy acts—all at very reasonable prices. 

The renovated bathrooms are welcome and the concessions are very good. And the people that work there are friendly, too.

This is a little cal treasure. We were visiting Rockland for a couple of days and bought tickets to a folk music performance. It was really amazing. Beautiful place, excellent acoustics, and a really wonderful line-up of performances. All at reasonable prices. Can’t wait until the next visit!

We love going to the Strand in Rockland. This renovated theater is a classic that has been updated to today's standards. It is extremely clean. They show a great selection of current independent movies and air Bolshoi Ballet and the Met Opera. While there, be sure to downstairs to the bathroom. They have a wonderful array of old photos and papers depicting the history of the theater. They need to improve their popcorn, but that's the only drawback from our most recent visit.

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.
