Since 1927

There is a lovely old movie theater in downtown Camas. It is situated on Fourth Street. It was built and first opened in 1927. In 1996 it was completely restored. The Liberty Theater adds character and a focal point to the small pedestrian friendly downtown area of Camas.

Looking up Fourth Street toward Natalia's and the Camas Public Library the sidewalk opens up in front of the Liberty. It is a gathering point, a place to meet friends, a landmark location.

This image captures the framework of that meeting place. The branches of the tree overarch the umbrella table and the Liberty's marquee. The old fashioned buildings, the soft sidewalk-front facades, and the blue sky beyond, punctuate the relaxed nostalgic atmosphere of this charming downtown scene.
