Architects: Harry Hake
The Liberty Theater opened on July 21, 1923. It was designed by Cincinnati architect Harry Hake. Construction costs were $300,000. The Liberty Theater featured 1,500 blue leather seats on the main floor and the balcony. Other amenities included an Italian marble lobby complete with a miniature Statue of Liberty, mahogany ticket sales booths, a grand marble and brass stairway, a large organ and a large mural of New York harbor painted on the stage.
At the time of the opening, admission ticket prices at the Liberty Theater were 33 cents for an evening show and 22 cents for a matinee.
The Liberty Theater suffered the loss of patrons to suburban multiplexes and drive-in movie establishments. By the early-1960’s, the Liberty Theater was showing its age. The theater closed in the 1970’s and the building was demolished by the Peoples-Liberty Bank to make way for an office addition.
