Since this is the only theater listed for Russellville, Missouri, and there is always the possibility that the information we have for it is wrong, I’m putting this item from the January 26, 1924 issue of The Reel Journal here:

“C. T. Karr and son have opened a new theatre, the Liberty, at Russellville, Mo. The house seats 200 and shows three times a week. G. W. Hartnian of Vitagraph sold the house exclusive Vitagraph service for three months' showing.”
A house called the Russellville Theatre is mentioned in the January 9, 1926 issue of Motion Picture News. Odds are the Liberty and the Russellville were the same theater. These are the only trade journal mentions of theaters in Russellville that I can find until this item from the April 19, 1947 issue of Showmen’s Trade Review:
“C. T. Carr is returning to film exhibition and hopes to open within a few weeks a theatre remodeled from an auditorium in Russellville, Mo. Carr was an exhibitor in that section of the state 10 or 15 years ago.”
