Previous Names: Dixie Theater
Originally opened about 1910 as the Dixie Theater in the former Illinois state capitol of Vandalia, this small, still-single screen gem of a movie house was remodeled in an Art Deco style during the 1930’s, when it was renamed the Liberty Theater.
Its vibrant Deco-style marquee is one of the theater’s most noticeable features, with the word ‘Liberty’ in stylized cursive writing, lit in neon and framed in lightbulbs. The Liberty Theater featured first-run films and occasional live acts until it was closed in early 2008.
