Strand Theatre

215 South Harrison Street
Shelbyville, IN 46176

The Strand Theatre opened for business in the Spring of 1916. But the story started sooner than that. This is a short account of how our theatre started its life. It is a transcription from a newspaper of the day. It may also be the first public mention of the theatre.
