The marked location is incorrect on the map. Liberty Theater, the only theater in town, is actually on the east side of main street between Gilliam and Summit streets.

The December 28, 1918 issue of Motion Picture News said that “J. B. SPARKS of the Liberty theatre at Condon, Ore. has purchased a fotoplayer for his house and intends to depend exclusively on this instrument for music.” Items in various trade journals earlier that year said that J. B. Sparks had bought the American Theatre at Condon. As I find no earlier mentions of the Liberty and no later mentions of the American, it is likely that the Liberty was the American renamed. The American Theatre was listed in the 1914-1915 American Motion Picture Directory.

The records of architect Day Walter Hilborn list unspecified work at the Liberty Theatre in Condon as a 1939 project.
