This house had the only one piece traveler curtain I ever saw, run manually by side ropes. Slight correction,this house was on the edge of the Hungary Hill area, not Winchester Sq. The Strand was in Winchester Sq.The Strand,Liberty, and Jefferson usually all had the same bookings.

The Liberty opened in 1928 and closed in 1958. It was a neighborhood theater for the Liberty St hill and nearby Hungry Hill areas.
The buidling wasn’t razed but became various warehouse companies.

I remember many happy days at the Liberty with only a 13 cent admission. Bring those days back.
