The Liberty Theater dates back to at least 1922 when a Kimball theater organ was installed. The Liberty closed in the early 1950s and has been used as a church. I’m not sure if the church is still located in this building.

This theatre was operated by Twin City Theaters, which operated in Centralia & Chehalis. The Pipe organ was damaged in 1926 when a fire gutted half the building.

Twin City owner in the late 1930s was Arthur St. John. He made the news in January 1938 when a hearse crashed into his new car, seriously injuring him and killing his wife. St. John was also president of a local radio station that broadcast in Centralia and Chehalis.
