About The Film

Stand with Ukraine through Film exists to raise funds to assist Ukrainians in and near Ukraine who are suffering as a result of the Russian invasion of their homeland. 
To simplify the flow of funds from ticket buyers and others, the project team created the Ukraine Relief Fund under the fiscal sponsorship of Human & Civil Rights Organizations of America, Inc. (HCROA).  HCROA was established in 1994 and has been an integral part of the US government’s Combined Federal Campaign, the leading workplace fundraising program in the country.  HCROA handles millions of dollars annually, donated by individuals and transferred to benefiting charities. It undergoes annual financial audits.
HCROA is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Donations are deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Donations – whether from ticket sales or private gifts – will go to international humanitarian organizations.  Among those expected to receive the bulk of the donations will be World Central Kitchen and the International Organization on Migration. A number of smaller tax-exempt groups will also receive support, reflecting the recommendations of Ukrainians.


Checks can be payable to Ukraine Relief Fund, Human & Civil Rights Organizations of America, PO BOX 2052, Salem, MA 01970

Strand Theatre

It is 1992 and Diana finds herself lost as she tries to drive to the Sandringham Estate to celebrate the holidays with the Royal Family. The cold treatment she receives upon her arrival is only exacerbated by her knowledge of her husband's affair and her acute awareness of the cage she is trapped in. The only bright spot of the supposed holiday is spending time with her sons, William and Harry. As the princess powers through three days of madness, she realizes what her next step should be.

Sunday afternoon at the Strand: Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring


Yes, Peter Jackson's Fellowship of the Rings 
will be onscreen at the Strand.

Sunday, January 9, 2022 at 3 PM

(sponsored by Rich & Jennifer Smith)

In the first part of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, a shy young hobbit 

named Frodo Baggins inherits a simple gold ring. He knows the ring has power, but not that he 

alone holds the secret to the survival--or enslavement--of the entire world. Now Frodo, 

accompanied by a wizard, an elf, a dwarf, two men and three loyal hobbit friends, must become 

the greatest hero the world has ever known to save the land and the people he loves.

Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortensen, Liv Tyler, Sean Bean

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men, doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them...

Come see the new 4k version of the Fellowship of the Ring and hear the newly remixed 

Atmos audio through our new Atmos sound system.

Tickets $10

available at Highway 61 Coffeehouse or at the door.
