Previous Names: McGhie Theater
Opened in November 1904 as the McGhie Theater. It operated as a venue for live shows until 1911, when it began showing movies. By 1919 it had been renamed Liberty Theater.
In 1925, the theater was nearly destroyed by fire, but was renovated. It continued showing movies until the 1970’s, when it was converted into a disco.
When the disco craze bottomed out, it became the home for several businesses. But, currently, the theater is empty.
Interestingly, the old ornate ticket booth that once stood outside the theater was sold to the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C., where it is kept in storage and used for special occasions.
