The Strand Theater

After visiting the Roswell Cotton Mill, nonfucious remarked on an empty theater in Marietta. Since we were going to be in the area anyway we dropped by to take some pictures and eat dinner at the neighboring Chinese restaurant.

Mmmm.. Mu shu!

The theater is being renovated. The construction permits list the owner as "Friends of The Strand", so I guess their "Save the Strand" campaign worked! Good for them! Sadly, by the time we happened by the demolition of the old interior was nearly complete. Judging from the history (and trash in the construction dumpster) it was mostly 80's era stuff anyway, probably from a previous renovation.

  1. Wow, that's the most lighting I've ever seen in there. I first saw a concert there in 1996, then later in 2001 saw a friend's band play there (we were all students at Southern Polytechnic down the street). In both cases the place always looked like a dump, was dimly lit, and almost always looked abandoned (even when in use).
