Around 1915 Dr. Hiram M. Johnson opened the Lois Theater. In 1927 the name was changed to the Liberty Theater. The latest information that I could find on the Liberty Theater is, the building is closed and is being renovated.

Additional information on the current status of the Liberty Theater would be appreciated.
