Description: Built in 1936 the Liberty theater was the place to be on the downtown...
Built in 1936 the Liberty theater was the place to be on the downtown square in Tyler, TX. It was the hub of entertainment until it closed in the mid 1980s. The City of Tyler purchased the Liberty in 2009 and rehabbed the facility. The City raised more that one million dollars in private donations to fund this stunning renovation. Our goal is to spur the revitalization of Tyler's historical downtown into an arts and entertainment district. Liberty Hall reopened in September of 2011 as a community performing arts hall that hosts classic movies, comedy, music and theater. The Hall is also available for rent to the public for events. The Liberty is once again a cornerstone of entertainment for downtown Tyler. Since our opening we have hosted such performers as: Suzy Bogguss, Asleep at the Wheel, Gary P. Nunn, Bob Schneider and Ray Wylie Hubbard. We also have live comedy shows almost monthly.

We went to the East Texas Comedy Festival here and it was fantastic! The theater is well maintained and the event was highly entertaining. They have events and they show movies throughout the year so we will definitely be back. We weren't sure what to expect but we were not disappointed.

The Liberty Theatre is a really fun place to see movies, plays, and way more! They have all kinds of different things they do there, so be sure to check out the website ( http://www.libertytyler.com/ ) for what all they have going on! Also, a cool thing is that if you volunteer, you can attend some shows for free! I'm... More

Great restoration! Good view from pretty much anywhere. Really nice variety of events. Not so small that it feels cramped but small enough to feel intimate.

NIce venue, nicely re-done in an art deco style. Seating provided good view of the stage; good sound. Only issue was reserved seating. Apparently this event was the first time they had reserved seating versus open seating; many people found the seats they reserved were not where they thought they were.

Saw Edwin McCain and Michaelis here on a Saturday evening. It is a lovely venue; small and intimate. Enjoyed the feel if being so close with the singers.

This is a redone theater that was sponsored by the city. It houses the city orchestra and plays classics movies when special activities are not taking place. Historic downtown square renovated. There are shows and tickets that cost as any regular show would cost.

Went with a group to watch "its a Wonderful Life". I enjoyed the restored theater. It is a small theater with not a lot of seating, but it is worth visiting.

The theater is pretty, but the film leaves something to be desired. It's about as quality as watching it on a home projection screen.

So sorry you did not know Take 2 was playing at Liberty Hall last March. If you have signed up for our email updates and are not recieving our emails, please let me know. Sometimes it may be caught in a spam filter. I did send several out regarding Take 2 and the show did sell out. Thanks, Anne Payne... More
