The Strand's marquis shines like a beacon on the Marietta Square. The theatre offers a variety of movies, plays, concerts, art exhibits, and events and has inspired an entire community through it's quality of shows and historic preservation. The economic impact the theatre has on the local shops and restaurants has been profound, as most theatre guests will eat or shop on the Square before attending a show. The rooftop terrace provides the best view of Kennesaw Mountain and Glover Park on the Marietta Square. The theatre has created such an impression, it has attracted the Atlanta Lyric Theatre and has built a successful partnership with them. Initially, The Strand's goal was to host 100 events in their first year. They surpassed their goal by doing 500, and although the staff is quite small, this number is a testimonial to the dedication and passion each person possesses. Earl Reece is a pillar in the community and is highly respected. He has assembled a staff of individuals with integrity and excellence. Under his leardership, the Strand has been an important addition to our community and continues to be a vital draw for tourism.

In the year the Earl Smith Strand Theatre has been opened, it has had an amazing impact on Marietta. We now have Silent Movies with the organ making an afternoon or evening of family entertainment. We have musicals, old movies, plays and live entertainment. It make the Square of Marietta even more alvie and vibrant and I want to thank The Friends of the Strand for bringing it back to life!

The Earl Smith Strand Theater continues to make such a positive impact in our community. Back in October, The Strand partnered with our school for a benefit to raise funds for our school's integrated arts program. Both performance nights were a sell out! The Strand is a venue where the people of our community want to gather. They know that they will be welcomed in a beautiful space by professionals who love our community. This organization, led by Earl Reece, is a tremendous asset to the Marietta/Cobb community.

I can't believe how beautiful The Strand Theatre is. I saw it when they were raising money for the theatre and it was just a shell. It is a great addition to our community and they are a true community partner.

Prior to the renovation of the Strand, the building was an empty eyesore on the Marietta Square. Since the renovation the building has become not only a revived historic building but also an active venue that helps build community within Marietta!

continue to serve the Marietta community and provide more events at the venue.

As a patron of the Strand I have enjoyed many performances, fundraisers and gatherings in the past year at The Strand. The entertainment at The Strand is top-notch and the relationship-building that has occurred through the Strand is beyond meaningful. The staff is AMAZING and they draw such wonderful crowds and create such a positive and entertaining environment. As a visual artist I have also been blessed with the opportunity to participate in the "Art Walk" as well as have my first solo exhibit in the area. My experience at the Strand as an artist has truly been immeasurable.

wonderful experiences... wonderful people... wonderful venue. I always feel appreciated for the time I give. Two facilities improvements would be the sink faucets in the restrooms and more emphasis on sound quality. I know that's diverse but they are the only two things I could come up with. I'd like to emphasize how wonderful the staff is... always helpful, friendly, and appreciative.
