The Liberty Theatre was opened in 1931. It was renamed Rio Theatre on November 17, 1932. It was operated by Paramont Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Hoblitzelle & O-Donnell. It was still open in 1951.

Not great, but for a ten-cent admission, it was an OK place

The address now is 118 Central Avenue SW. It’s a Sushi King restaurant. There’s no picture of the building on the King’s website, so I don’t know if the theater is being reused.

Oklahoma Hisorical Society Archives presents this 1932 shot of the Rio Theatre. Just OK? It is great the way Spanish Adobe styling flowed gracefully to form Southwestern patterns. I love this one!
