About the The Strand Theatre

The Strand Theatre opened its doors in Shreveport LA in 1925 as an opera house and movie theater. The venue's first production was held that year—the comic opera, The Chocolate Soldier. Originally nicknamed the "Grandest Theatre in the South" and the "Million Dollar Theatre," the Strand has undergone several renovations and restoration projects throughout its nearly 90-year history. It is now listed as the State Theater of Louisiana and has become a popular venue for a variety of theater performances, concerts and other live shows, as well as movies.
