Opening in July of 1921, the Liberty Theatre was opened joining the Rex Theatre as the town’s second cinema. Local architect Harry W. Altman designed the $50,000 two-story brick theatre. The cinema added Vitagraph sound in 1927.

Regular screenings stopped in 1954 though the theatre continued to be used for high school commencement, cooking demonstrations, live local stock plays, and a variety of other events. The last screening appears to be a holiday benefit film on December 24, 1956. A group of teenage boys would vandalize the theatre badly in 1957 and the theatre was ultimately torn down and the property used to build a new laundromat. That building was also torn down.
