Playing at the Strand

“A Kiss in the Dark” kicked off “Paramount Week” at the Ocean Theatre in Ocean Beach, on Sunday September 6, 1925.  You knew that, right?  What about The Strand, you ask?  You thought our wonderful little old community Movie Theater was always called the Strand?  Well, yes and no.  And if you would like to sort that out, and discover how the Ocean Beach Historical Society came into possession of The Strand’s former projector, we have just the story for you.  Featured in the Point Loma – OB Monthly:  https://www.pointloma-obmonthly.com/news/story/2020-11-18/a-page-from-history-ocean-beachs-old-strand-theatre-created-many-fond-memories-for-longtime-movie-fan  This story is really called Playing at the Strand. They didn’t quite see it that way, but now you know.
