This theater is still standing; Google Maps tends to have issues with diagonal streets in particular. The building is about 3 stories with a picture window on the second floor and a round bay on the third.

The Liberty Theater opened in 1912 and closed in 1929.

I think Google is showing the wrong building. On the Cook County parcel map, this building is 017 and the parking lot is 019 and 020. Try this link. Click on “View Property Map”. This address will be the red building.

The building is currently home to “Young Chicago Authors” and “Metropolitan Tenants Organization” if anyone is trying to spot it.
