1535 Market Street is now a Honda dealer’s showroom and garage. The back and side walls of the building look like they could be fairly old construction, but if this is the same structure that once housed the Liberty Theatre it has been drastically altered, and the interior must have been gutted.

this dual photo from a 1937 brochure published by the Ohio Valley Board of Trade, and now in the Ohio County Public Library collection, shows the Court Theatre at top and the Liberty Theatre at the bottom.

The April 28, 1917, issue of The American Contractor noted the letting of contracts for the Liberty Theatre. The architect was Charles D. McCarty.
