F.H. Wozencraft launched the Liberty Theatre during World War I in 1916 and had no competition. But ten years later, an oil boom brought several new theatres – the Rex, Ritz, State and Rialto to town. Outmatched, Wozencraft expanded the Liberty by 400 seats in 1927 and added sound later. But the approach failed and the Liberty Theatre closed September 6, 1930 with a double feature of “Swell Head” and “Call of the West.” The space was converted to a toy store that was open for the Christmas shopping season.
