Strand Theatre
Movie House & Grille

The Strand Theatre is a Clinton Landmark and one of Central Massachusetts' best kept secrets. The Strand Theatre is one of the oldest existing movie theatres in the area. Complete with its signature marquee, The Strand offers the quaintness, quality, and hometown friendliness of theatres from yesteryear.

Currently, the Strand Theatre offers a unique twist in movie entertainment. Known in the trade as a Cinema Pub, Drafthouse or Grille, The Strand Theatre offers movie patrons the ability to enjoy a casual light meal and drink while watching a current motion picture on the big screen, with state-of-the-art sound and service in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. The Strand features the finest in recent motion picture entertainment on one of the largest screens in Worcester County.

Couples and families come to The Strand Theatre to enjoy a relaxing evening at the movies and a lunch and/or light dinner. Customers say “it's like watching a movie in our own living room”. Best of all, ticket prices and menu are extremely affordable. In general, a couple will spend on average $35 for admission and dinner combined.

The theater exhibits recent-release motion picture films that are rotated on a weekly basis, allowing patrons to visit the theater each week with a new film. Guests are seated in a comfortable atmosphere with tables, plenty of leg room, staggered seating (so everyone can see the screen) and can enjoy beer, wine, and a casual light menu. The Strand’s menu features a wide selection of beer, wine, fresh pizzas, burgers, finger foods such as chicken tenders, French fries, onion rings, mozzarella sticks, grilled chicken sandwiches, dinner specials, fresh popcorn, vegetarian selections, and more.

In addition to our regular movie schedule, The Strand features special events throughout the year. Live comedy shows with comedians from the Boston area are held 3 times a year (February, April, and October). "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", complete with a live interactive cast, makes an appearance in October just before Halloween. The popular "Polar Express" matinee weekend pulls into The Strand in early December. July and August find their Mondays filled with classics from previous decades. "Jaws" always kicks off the two month series, but the rest of the movies are based on audience suggestions. 

During non-regularly scheduled movie times, The Strand is available to host large groups and functions such as birthday parties, business meetings, etc.

The Strand Theatre was built in 1924 and initially operated as a vaudeville theater and silent movie house. With the collapse of vaudeville and the advent of “talking-pictures", The Strand continued to operate as a movie house until the late 1970's. The Strand was  completely renovated and re-opened in March of 1995 as a cinema and draught house.

Come visit The Strand and experience when movie theatres were truly a theatrical experience!
