It would seem the theatre reopened in late 1944. A news story appearing in the St. Louis Globe-Democrat in January 1945 related that the mayor of East St. Louis ordered the New Liberty Theatre to stop showing “adults only” type of films that it had been exhibiting for three months. Max Wald, the manager, then said he would change to “general interest” films. How long this policy lasted is not known.
