The November 4, 1914, issue of The New York Dramatic Mirror had this item:

“Poughkeepsie, N. Y.. adds the Liberty Theater, which opened on Oct. 28, to her list of new picture theaters. The house, which is under the management of Mr Dodds, has a seating capacity of 1,600. The opening attraction was ‘The Man on the Box.’”
CinemaTour gives the aka Midtown Theatre for this house, but doesn’t indicate when the name was used.
