It Takes a Community to Raise a Theatre
Restoring The Strand has been a community effort and there’s something for everyone at The Strand! People who have nostalgic memories of The Strand and people who had never been to The Strand until it re-opened in 2009 all find great entertainment here! From musicals to classic films to kid films to concerts and educational opportunities, the theatre is truly a cultural center of Cobb County. Though the theatre has been raised and restored, The Strand still needs the community’s support to pay off a $2 million short-term loan that was needed to complete the project. Gifts of all sizes will make a big difference! The Friends of The Strand, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization and gifts are tax deductible. All funds generated are paid toward the loan which was used toward construction, furnishings, equipment, and start up operations for The Strand Theatre.
Donations can be made over the phone during regular business hours – Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, or by mailing in a donation of any size to:
