Gregg Theatre

The Liberty Theatre was opened prior to 1919. It was remodelled in 1940 to the plans of architect Larry P. Larsen and reopened as the New Gregg Theatre. The 1946 Unkwa High School Yearbook, Copan, OK, ran a display add for the Gregg Theatre in Caney, KS.

The New Gregg Theatre was still operating in 1950.

This item is from the “Theater Changes” column of the July 17, 1940, issue of Motion Picture Daily:

“Open Kansas House Soon

“Kansas City, July 16. — The new theatre at Caney, Kan., practically rebuilt from the old Liberty by Larry Larsen, architect and builder, will be opened shortly by C. R. Gregg. The new house, renamed the Gregg, has been closed for two months.”

The Liberty Theatre at Caney, Kansas, was mentioned in the June 7, 1919, issue of The Moving Picture World. Earlier than that I’ve found a Strand Theatre (new front to be installed, MPW April 6, 1918) and an Iris Theatre (recently opened, MPW August 28, 1915) in Caney. Possibly earlier names for the same theater?
