This theatre was built in 1912 as the Savoy Theatre. It was renamed the Liberty Theatre in 1920. It closed in the late-1920’s after the larger Madison Cinema opened. It was used for a short time as a miniature golf course before becoming a warehouse, and then a NAPA auto parts store.

The structure still stands (minus its auditorium), but plans are underway to demolish everything but the facade and build a four story residential/commercial building in its place. A 1924 photo can be found on page 3 of the 4/26/07 Star Ledger.

Any additional information on this theatre would be greatly appreciated.

Ah! I was in Madison cycling yesterday and was checking out the downtown. I went right by this building and made a note to come on here and see if it indeed was a theatre. It sure looked like one and is still standing as a NAPA store, however it’s just the lobby of the building with no auditorium. Must have sat only 200 or so.
