The Liberty Tri-Cinema was never a “Twin” it went from a single screen to three in November of 1975 with “Hearts Of The West”, “Benji” and “Earthquake.” It is closed.

2005 was the last year the cinema was in operation.This is a shame as each theatre was of a good size. The main theatre had 550 or so seats.

Nothing sadder than an abandoned movie theater marque

Does anyone know of the Schwartz family who I believe owned this
Theater at one time?

It appears that some restoration work was started but has yet to be completed. The theatre covers almost the entire block and could be a great venue for live performances.

The theater is under restoration for a 2023 target opening.
