I was let into the Liberty for a five-minute look by a gracious box office employee last week. The interior is every bit as ornate and fanciful as the facade over the entrance.

I have been told that arrangements are underway to acquire and install a theatre pipe organ.

There was another Liberty Theater in Burns, OR, as seen in this photo from 1941:

The restoration of the Liberty Theater is very near completion. The exterior is still in nead of a paint job and there are other minor addition to come. A couple note worthy items are the installation of a new entry marquee and vertical signage based on historic photos and the restoration of the grand chandelier. The chandelier can be seen at: http://www.gkalighting.com/GKLiberty.html
Check back soon for an exterior photo.
