Information for this tour was contributed by Dave Felthous.

The Liberty Theater was built in the early part of the last century, a low brick building on a corner. It had about 250 seats and pretty multicolored wall lights in the auditorium. In 1945 it became part of the Sterling chain but continued to be operated by owner Basil Bashor, who got some Sterling stock in the deal. The Liberty mostly showed cowboy pictures and B dramas. It was the first local theater to fall victim to television, closing in the early 1950s.

The building was later gutted and was a boat dealership for many years. It was torn down a few years ago to make way for a larger bridge over the nearby Cowlitz River.
