“The Final Curtain Call”
AFTER 58 YEARS OF OPERATING THE HENRY STRATER THEATRE,
WE HAVE DECIDED TO CLOSE.
This was a very difficult decision. The Strater Hotel does not own the building that houses the theatre, creating a lack of ability to manage costs and rendered the operation unsustainable. The tipping point came with the COVID-19 Pandemic. The Strater will concentrate on the properties we own — our Historic Hotel, The Mahogany Grille, The Office Spiritorium, The Diamond Belle Saloon and others.
The loss of “The Hank” affects many wonderful events, festivals, group gatherings and more, and it will likely impact the downtown community. So now we’ll need to look for new ways to house these community projects, events and talents. After nearly 100 years of supporting this community we love, you can bet The Barker Family and The Strater Hotel will continue to be part of that new future. We welcome your input as we develop a plan.
