One reason why this theater had a name change from Liberty to the Roxy was because Mercy Theaters (who originally opened it) would call many of their first-run movie theaters the Liberty. Second run theaters would be called the Roxy.

It is currently the Roxy Theater Antiques & Gifts owned by Ann Steiger, according to their website. The site also states the Roxy stopped showing movies in 1957. It was a men & women’s clothing store in the early 1960’s before becoming a furniture store, and back to clothing. Apparently the theater logo is at the entrance of the current store on the tile floor.
