Here's another shot of the Liberty Theatre, this one taken in late 2008. The front facade of the theatre has been repainted to lighter, more pastel colors.

According to Cinema Treasures, the theatre was opened around 1910 as the Dixie Theatre. The sign says "closed" possibly due to a damaged roof sustained in early 2008. 11-08
