Strand Theatre to Celebrate Its 100th Anniversary with Free Silent Film Series

HUDSON FALLS – On Jan. 17, the Strand Theatre will celebrate the 100th anniversary of its grand opening with a screening of the 1923 silent romantic-comedy classic, “Safety Last!” Three more silent film classics will follow on Jan. 19, 20, and 21.

The Strand Theatre opened on Jan 17, 1923, with two screenings of “One Week in Love.” In 1935, it was purchased and remodeled by Schine Enterprises. It continued operations until the mid 1960s, when it closed its doors. On Oct. 7, 2016, the nonprofit Hudson River Music Hall Productions (under the leadership of local musician Jonathan Newell) closed on the property and began a multi-year restoration project. The theatre is now once again a vibrant part of the local arts scene, hosting music, dance, theater, film, and more most nights of the week.

The schedule of films for the anniversary celebration is:

Jan. 17: Harold Lloyd’s “Safety Last!”

Jan. 19: Buster Keaton’s “The General”

Jan. 20: Max Schreck’s “Nosferatu”

Jan. 21: Fritz Lang’s “Metropolis”
