The Liberty Theatre, located on Van Dyke Avenue, was a 1941 new build or remodel project by my grandfather’s Johnson Construction Co. Our family’s theater and drive-in job list shows it incorrectly in Detroit, but Google Maps shows the location as Center Line. It’s shown on this (Cinema Treasures) site as Warren.

My grandfather, A.S. “Al” Johnson, shot the slide that I’ve uploaded to this website on August 1948. “Alias a Gentleman” appears on the marquee. The image shows the theater in typical “art moderne” style with period-appropriate doors, marquee and accents.
