This is the Liberty Theatre in the East Liberty section of Pittsburgh at the corner of Penn Avenue and Shady Avenue, and not to be confused with a theatre of the same name which was located on Liberty Avenue downtown. The Liberty Theatre was opened on December 27, 1915. It was listed in the 1914-1915 edition of American Motion Picture Directory at 6113-6115 Penn Avenue. By 1922 it was operated by the Rowland and Clark Theaters chain.
It was equipped with an Austin organ, which was later replaced by a Kimball 3 manual 13 ranks organ.
By April 1962 it was screening Italian movies and the Liberty Theatre was closed on September 6, 1965 and was demolished in November 1968. The Kimball organ has now been installed in the Palace Theatre, Cleveland, OH.
