A message from the Strand Theatre

Dear Strand friends,

Our priority at the Strand is the health and safety of our patrons and employees. We will continue to monitor and follow guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as local and state public health authorities.

While the current risk level of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in midcoast Maine is considered to be low, we wanted to share the steps we're taking here at the Strand - and the precautions we, as a community of individuals, should take - to help keep each other healthy.

As of Friday, March 13, the Strand's regularly scheduled films will be screened as planned, until further notice; please see our websiteor call (207) 594-0070 for current updates.

Unfortunately, however, some of our upcoming events have been postponed or canceled due to decisions made by other presenting organizations or the inability of our visiting artists to travel.

As of today, we have had to postpone the following events:


·      March 14: Met Opera Live-in-HD: Der Fliegende Hollander

·      March 14: The Bicentennial Birthday Bash Show

·      March 14 & 15: Maine in the Movies screenings (In the Bedroom; Captain        January; Peyton Place)

·      March 20: Kat Edmonson concert

·      March 24: Met Opera Encore: Der Fliegende Hollander

·      April 5: Maine Jewish Film Festival


Rescheduled dates for these events as well as any additional event postponements will be announced via e-blast and social media, and on our website. Ticket buyers will be contacted in the event of a cancelation or postponement.

In the meantime, we ask that our patrons and staff adhere to the following guidelines and be aware of the steps we are taking to ensure everyone's health and safety:

·      If you have a fever, cough or sore throat, please do not come into the Strand. If you are sick, or wish to avoid a large group, we will happily refund your advance-purchased tickets for concerts that are scheduled through May 1; please call our box office at 207-594-0070 or e-mail [email protected]for assistance.

·      We will sell tickets for no more than 50% capacity for our movies, to allow for social distancing with fellow patrons

·      We have been increasing our frequency of cleaning and disinfecting our theater, including the box office, concessions stand, theater seats, and restrooms. 

·      We've instructed staff to follow standard precautions, including frequent handwashing, and to stay home if they feel ill. 

Thank you for your support and cooperation. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!
