By the mid-1920s, the Liberty Theatre was one of three houses in Poughkeepsie operated by the Famous Players circuit, who used it as a second-run house. A comment on the Bardavon page confirms that the Liberty in later years (1950s) operated as the Midtown Theatre.

The November 4, 1914, issue of The New York Dramatic Mirror had this item:

“Poughkeepsie, N. Y.. adds the Liberty Theater, which opened on Oct. 28, to her list of new picture theaters. The house, which is under the management of Mr Dodds, has a seating capacity of 1,600. The opening attraction was ‘The Man on the Box.’”
CinemaTour gives the aka Midtown Theatre for this house, but doesn’t indicate when the name was used.
