The Liberty Theatre was built within the shell of a former church, and was designed by architect C. Howard Crane. Photos of it were featured in an article on Crane’s theater designs in the September, 1914, issue of The American Architect, but I’ve been unable to find a digital version of that magazine online. Fortunately, some of the illustrations can be seen in The Theater Designs of C. Howard Crane, the Masters thesis of Lisa Maria DiChiera, available at The Internet Archive:
