Thanks for the correction, Joe. I’ll remove the photograph. Google Street View shows 849 as the correct address, which should be changed on this page as well as the Google Street View.

Ken: The current address is also wrong. The address is not visible in Street View, but the Liberty building is between Foot Zone at 845 Wall and Dalia & Emilia Clothing at 855 Wall. Google Maps will probably fetch roughly the right location with either 849 or 851.

rivest266: You uploaded the Tower Theatre opening ad to the wrong page. This is the page for the Liberty Theatre, which was two doors up the street from the Tower.

Brad Smith: Ranch Records in the photo you uploaded is not located in the Liberty Theatre building. The Liberty was in the more ornate, three story, Spanish style building up the street. See the vintage postcard that DonLewis linked to in his first comment, showing both theaters.

Ken Roe: Street View is also fixed on the wrong building. Three clicks to the right will take the view to the Liberty building.

This opened on March 6th, 1940 http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=SRtPAAAAIBAJ&sjid=uB8EAAAAIBAJ&pg=5913%2C4315015 has the grand opening ad.

The Liberty Theater building (now Ranch Records) at 831 NW Wall Street is adjacent to the Tower Theater at 835 NW Wall Street.

A nice b&w photo from 1947 showing the Liberty and Tower theaters in Bend Oregon.
