The Strand Theatre continues to present new release films to stream from their website. Three documentaries will be available throughout the month of January.

"Coup 53" is the story of the 1953 Anglo-American coup in Iran that overthrew the democratically elected Prime Minister Mossadegh and reinstalled the Shah. The film features never seen before archive materials which had been hidden for decades.

"Collective" is a gripping, real-time docu-thriller that follows a heroic team of journalists as they expose shocking corruption in the Romanian national health-care system following an explosive fire that claimed the lives of 27 people at Colectiv, a Bucharest nightclub.

"Zappa," the first all-access documentary on the life and times of innovative singer-songwriter Frank Zappa, features archival footage and explores the private life behind the mammoth musical career that never shied away from the political turbulence of its time.

Additional films to stream during January are "The Weasels' Tale," "Kill It and Leave this Town," and "The Reason I Jump." More information about all the films can be found on the Strand Theatre website at

Tickets to stream each film are $12 and are available at the Strand Theatre website. The Strand receives 50% of ticket proceeds, so a viewer’s purchase is a simple and direct way to provide much-needed support for the theater.
