The Liberty Theatre was located in the Brownsville district of Brooklyn, around ten blocks east of Loew’s Pitkin Theatre. It had a second entrance on Stone Avenue. Opened as the Liberty Avenue Theatre in 1910, it had a seating capacity of 1,056 (564 in the orchestra and 492 in the balcony). It was taken over by Loew’s Inc. from 1913 to 1918.
A second balcony was added in 1918, to the plans of architect S. Millam & Son, and this increased the seating capacity. From 1919 until it was closed in the mid-1930’s it operated under several managements as a Yiddish theatre.
The Liberty Theatre is listed in the 1930 edition of Film Daily Yearbook, with a seating capacity of 1,467. It was demolished in 1942.
