The Liberty Theater (Official)
Previously operated by: Midstate Amusement Corp.
Functions: Movies (First Run)
Previous Names: Dreamland Theater
There has been a theatre at this location since 1910. The present Liberty Theater was designed to the plans of architect Charles B. Lambert and reopened in 1921 after being closed because of a 1919 fire. By 1950 it was operated by Midstate Amusement Corp. It served the city of Dayton until its closure in the early-1970’s. Through the efforts of the Touchet Valley Arts Council (TVAC), which began its restoration in 1994, the Liberty opened again in 2001.
Today the fare in the 147-seat theatre, with a 46-seat balcony and a state-of-the-art projection and JBL sound system, includes a combination of live performances and first-run and art films. Each month the work of a local artist is featured in the lobby.
The Dayton Downtown Historic District, which includes the Liberty Theater, was put on The National Register of Historic Places in 1999.
