After Ithaca's Lyceum Theater closed in 1927, the Strand became Ithaca's main venue for touring theater companies. After 1950, the theater switched to showing only films. The theater closed in 1976 due to a leaky roof and deteriorated heating system, then re-opened in 1979 for live performances.
In 1981 the owners attempted to secure grants to renovate the building and pay huge outstanding debts.
