Liberty Hall's a historical treasure of Lawrence - and a wonderful venue to boot. They have great shows and even better films coming through on a regular basis - only complaint of mine is the little theater isn't nearly as good of an experience as the large one in the auditorium if you're watching a movie. Otherwise, this is a... More

What more can you ask of a local theater? Shows the best movies that don't go to the big theaters. Community conscious. Hosts many community activities and live shows. Historically important. Neat place. Sound system could be better.

Loved Liberty Hall!! We were in the little theater for a movie- such a great environment. It was a little cold and don't expect the comfy recliners at a traditional theater, but it was a great experience. Concessions are cheap and they even sell booze!

Liberty Hall is the epitome of awesome, staff, shows, movies, etc. Great place to catch live bands, indie movies or a rental. The staff in the video department knows their stuff! Where other video stores have failed, I've always found what I'm looking for at Liberty Hall. LOVE the variety of snacks for the theaters.

the christmas jazz event it great. This art deco theatre is top notch and provides the perfect venue for jazz and drinks. The seats are very comfortable and the dance floor was large enough for the crowd. It was fun watching the really great dancers with spats and gloves. It got us 'In the Mood" for the holidays.

What a cool old building with a long history and memories. The beautiful hippie murals are still painted on the tall walls. The stage has hosted some epic shows. It was the original Red Dog Inn and home office and venue to Mid-Continent Booking Agency who started with the Fabulous Flippers and then devolped many more "horn bands" with catchy... More

This old building has character. And, the films are top rate: good foreign films, great independent offerings and timely documentaries. Ticket prices are modest. Admittedly, the seats are not the most comfortable and the sound quality could be improved - but, you don't have to pay exorbitant amounts for the simple pleasure of having a beer or glass of wine...

This is the best place to see live music in Lawrence, Kansas. A classic old theater in the heart of downtown. It's also a film theater that runs mostly art and independent films. Drinks and snacks are reasonably priced, nothing like at commercial movie theaters, and you can even have a beer or latte to take to your seat. Treat... More

Liberty Hall is the site of numerous historic concerts. The old timers will remember it as the Red Dog Inn, where bands like the Red Dogs, King Midas and the Mufflers, High John and White Clover, the predecessor to Kansas, played to overflow crowds. The 1912 Opera House was restored to its original glory in 1986 and now plays host... More

I've been to see movies in their theater probably 4 times. The only bad part is the seats are rock hard to young, and old it is painful! They do have a bar for the movie theater, and another for tge concert hall. I've been to the concert hall part to see bands or movies 4 times also.the acoustics aren't... More
