No it was not demolished. Liberty place is built on the 1600 block of Chestnut. Today, the Arcadia/Roy Roger’s building still stands on Chestnut, albeit boarded up. I never recall seeing a film here, but do remember countless times eating at the huge restaurant. You’d enter the front and walk forever to get to the service counter. This was the coolest fast food place in the city because you could go upstairs to the balcony and you could enter from the back entrance off of Ranstead street. I think Roys had a similar restaurnt on the 1200 block of Chestnut St.
