Diane Boutwell-Grey, third from the left, discusses her memories of The Strand Theater with Alan Ramsey of Yazoo Restoration and Craig Bjorgum and Ingrid Gonzalez-Featherston, of Belinda Stewart Architects in Eupora and others Friday. Boutwell-Grey returned the original box office booth, which is shown here as a makeshift work table outside The Strand. Ramsey will be restoring the box office booth with aid of provided photos. The City of Kosciusko bought the theater in 2007 in hope of making it into a convention/multi-purpose facility with a regional museum. Work on the facade and the roof has been underway over the last several months. Boutwell-Grey said she rescued the relic in the mid-70s, when the theater was remodeling and it was going to be thrown away. Boutwell-Grey’s parents, Cleo and Lula Mae Boutwell, owned the theater for many years.
