Summer in the City of Lakewood

Things to do in Lakewood

Ah, summer is finally in full swing. The #PineBeltAutomotiveGroup: Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep of Lakewood, NJ are celebrating this summer. We are celebrating 80 years of being the go-to of car dealerships in NJ. We are celebrating 80 years of being in the business of selling vehicles and an 80-year commitment to excellence. One of the most amazing places to hang in the summer has been around longer than we have.

The Strand

If you are into any kind of art, since 1922 the Strand Theater has been host to many a show and concert. Thomas Lamb, a famous theater architect designed the Strand in Lakewood to be a place for Broadway producers to bring their shows before moving on to NYC. Lakewood was already a summer place for the likes of the Rockefellers and President Grover Cleveland. The Strand was built acoustically to amplify the human voice before there were gadgets and technology to do this.

Featuring both live and film entertainment, the Strand featured the then unknowns like Milton Berle and Burns and Allen. When talkies came along, the Strand became a full-time movie house but languished with the advent of television and large movie-plexes in the suburbs. In 1981 it became a historical landmark. In 1992 it was restored through grants and the generosity of businesses and individuals.

The Strand now produces its own shows, concerts, plays and even hosts dinner shows and is home to the Stand School of the Arts. Many of us at Pine Belt love the concerts. This summer, fans can enjoy tribute shows to Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath, Jimmy Buffett and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. You also won’t want to miss the Elvis’ 40th Anniversary Spectacular or the Ultimate Michael Jackson Experience!
