Located in Caro Michigan, this small but charming single-screen movie house shows first-run films. Originally opened in the 20s, the Strand has been remodeled over the years, most recently during the late 90s. It features a beautifully intact Art Deco style facade and marquee illuminated by neon and lightbulbs.
