The Historic Strand Theater in Delaware

| December 4, 2013 | 0 Comments

The Strand Theatre in downtown Delaware opened its doors almost 100 years ago–in April 1916–and ranks as one of oldest cinemas still in operation in the U.S. In 2002, Ohio Wesleyan stepped in and helped create a non-profit board that currently owns the Strand. Despite its three screens and all-digital projection, the cinema is still forced to compete with larger multiplexes that feature dozens of films and stadium seating.

We speak with the “lady behind the curtain,” Kara Long, who tells us how the charm and friendly attention of this local historic theater nevertheless manages to capture the love and devotion of filmgoers of all ages.
