Boxoffice of February 12, 1938, reported that the Liberty at El Campo was one of several houses operated by the Long chain in which Griffith Theatres had acquired a half interest. Griffith intended to remodel the Liberty.

The Liberty was taken over from Long Theatres by Harry Grief in 1953, according to Boxoffice of March 28 that year. Grief intended to adopt a policy of showing Mexican movies.

Any chance of anyone finding an address for the Liberty and Floyd Theaters? I wonder if they are still standing?
