I found a newspaper article with a picture of the Liberty Theater located in Herkimer NY. The picture is dated as 1959. (Click the link below for the picture) I also found this theater was open at least from 1920 to 1959. By 1941, it was operated by the Schine Circuit. The building was demolished and replaced with a parking lot for a bank.

I found a seat count of 1050 for the Liberty Theater. A Moller theater organ opus 2777 size 3/16 was installed in the Liberty Theater in 1920.
