Interview with Epperly and Rundle on Wednesday, January 12 with ticket give-away to follow.

The New Strand was built in 1910 as an opera house and meeting hall for the Knights of Pythias.  In the late 20's - Early 30's it was transformed to a movies only theatre and has operated as a movie theatre since then.

December of 1999 a two week volunteer effort to help restore the theatre and reclaim the stage for live performances was undertaken, sparked by the group Global Volunteers a community effort of over 100 people joined to paint, recover seats and ready the stage for live performances. 

Since then the Theatre has become the performing home of Eulenspiegel Puppets and has become a popular destination to see movies of all kinds.
