Strand Theatre Building in Lansing
Sometimes you just have to stop and look at the beautiful historic buildings in Michigan. This is the Strand Theatre and Arcade that was built in 1921. Although it is used for offices now, in its heyday the Strand had 2000 seats making it the largest vaudeville and motion picture theatre, with bowling alleys, a ballroom and 14 specialty stores. In 1941 it became the Michigan Theatre which closed in 1980.
