1910's - jubilationphotography

The Strand Theatre in San Francisco, CA. It opened in 1917 as the Jewel and became The Strand in 1928. The Strand had quite an extravagant marquee for a while. The theatre was eventually neutered of its beautiful marquee and became a dirty movie house in the 1990's before being raided and shut down by the city of San Francisco. After standing in runs for a while, it was bought by ACT, who is in the process of restoring the building. A new federal building looms ominously over the Strand.
