The Strand Theatre is located at 717 Clay Street in the Adolph Rose Building in downtown Vicksburg. It opened as a movie theatre in 1934, and closed about 30 years later. In 2011, the Westside Theatre Foundation, a 501 (c) (3), began the ongoing task of rehabbing the theatre and bringing it back to life as a movie theatre and performance space.
