With impressive architectural features and ornate interior décor, the Strand Theatre is an iconic performing arts venue located in the West Edge district of downtown Shreveport. The building was originally constructed as a motion picture theater in 1925 at the height of the golden era in American theater. For residents seeking an upscale entertainment experience, the Strand is Shreveport’s premier location.

The Strand’s production schedule is carefully selected to serve Shreveport’s diverse community. Some of the past performances include:

  • Broadway musicals including “West Side Story” and “The Color Purple”

  • Concerts by local dance troupes
  • Seasonal plays and productions

With a glamorous interior, including elaborate box seats and a 14-foot-tall chandelier, the Strand has earned a national reputation. ​The theater was named one of the top five glitziest theaters for live performance in the U.S. by USA Weekend and AMC Magazine.
