The ghosts of the golden age of theater return to their preserved old haunts to give you a thrilling treat at the historical Earl Smith Strand Theatre. Today's side deal gets you a ticket to see one of the Strand's spooky Halloweekendz Movies for $3. Hungry zombies, howling werewolves, creepy creatures, and ghoulish ghosts haunt the screen Thursdays through Sundays until the end of October at the Strand. Check out the schedule for shows and times, and grab someone you trust to protect you from movie monsters.
As you walk beneath the lit-up marquee into the renovated Strand Theatre, you'll feel the wind's chill on your neck and the excitement your parents probably felt back when going to the movies was a big event. The gorgeous theater is decorated in gold and crimson, with old-fashioned seats and intricate details. Arrive 30 minutes prior to showtime for a pre-show organ sing-along, rousing the spirit of the silver screen.
The classic décor of the Strand may put you in the mood for a classic flick like The Birds or Psycho from the master silhouette of suspense. Laugh with Young Frankenstein, or take your scared little sis to see Casper, but make sure you know the chilling consequences that come 28 Days Later. If you're unsure of The Thing that scares you, buy a few tickets and bring your friends for old-fashioned fun and a healthy scare.
Yelpers give the Earl Smith Strand Theatre four stars:
- They had ushers to show you to your seat and before the movie they had an organ playing sing along tunes...when the movie was over everyone applauded....how often does that happen these days... – I'm cooler t.
- What a gorgeous venue!...I was so impressed with all 4 floors. The stage and theatre are so nice, it is like being transported back into time. – Lesa T.
