The Strand Theatre in Rockland will reopen for film screenings on Friday, June 11, with newly released “In the Heights,” a musical set in New York City’s Washington Heights that features music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

In a news release, Executive Director Jessie Davis said, “On Friday, June 11, we will once again open the doors, pop the popcorn, and illuminate the Strand screen in a spirit of gratitude and celebration. We are more than ready to come together again to enjoy the beauty of the shared experience!”

The theater has established protocols for the health and safety of visitors and staff, including enhanced cleaning practices and an upgraded ventilation system. Each show’s attendance will be capped at 70 (20% of auditorium capacity) and moviegoers will be asked to wear masks while entering and moving about the theater. Those who are fully vaccinated will be permitted to remove their masks once seated.

The Strand will continue to offer online entertainment in addition to shows in the theater. An outdoor summer concert series will be presented in the Key Bank parking lot next to the Strand; live concerts are expected to resume in the theater this fall.
