The 1921 Wid’s Year Book lists the Liberty and Star Theatres in New Kensington among the ten theaters then being operated by Rowland & Clark.
The April 3, 1920, issue of The American Contractor said that the contract had been let for the Liberty Theatre:A document prepared for the nomination of the New Kensington Downtown Historic District to the NRHP says that the Liberty Theatre opened on May 2, 1921.
