Strand Call-a-thon donations total over $100,000!

fundraiserThe Strand staff and board would like to thank all of our supporters for a very successful Call-a-thon this past Wednesday. At the 12 hour long event, we surpassed our goal of $75,000 by raising just over $100,000 at our last count. Above are some of of our board members with our count at 9pm that night. We are still getting checks in the mail- so stay tuned for our final number!

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.  If you wish to donate (even if it is $10.00) by calling  during regular business hours – Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, or by mailing in a donation of any size to: Friends of The Strand, PO Box 4186, Marietta, GA 30061.

The Strand has become the place for quality entertainment, nostalgic movies, weddings, receptions, and just a fun place to gather with friends.
