Strand Theater Is Mortgage Free!

I'm not sure what that means, Mortgage Free.  Does that mean they don't have to pay rent?

To celebratel The Strand being Morgage Free I thought I would share some pictures I took back in 2009 when they had their grand reopening/Open House.

In my formative years I spent more hours in this building than I did at Crestview Baptist Church that  I belonged to, and I'm pretty sure I got more inspirations, guidance, morals, the difference from right and wrong,  and spiritual messages here.

As we toured The Strand that day I was hoping a very old usher would not pop out of the shadows and remind management that Larry Bradford and I was kicked out for life about 60 years ago.

Fancy shiny things that are in upscale theaters
