Liberty Theater Gets A Facelift

MidContinental Restoration Co, Inc. workers on Tuesday morning prep the face of the Liberty Theater, 113 S. Main, for painting.

Foreman Ronnie Coulter, Bronson, is pictured on the ground while Foreman Jonas Greenway, Bronson is on the SkyJack which lifts him to do the work.

Coulter said they have replaced plaster and wood, re-anchored plastered details and then will paint this week if weather permits.

Liberty Theater Owner Jared Leek said he is giving the theater a facelift in preparation for the event season fast approaching.

Weddings and other special events are a part of the services the theater provides.

The Southpaw Preachers will perform next Saturday, April 14 from 8:30 to 11:30 p.m. at the Liberty, according to Liberty Theater’s Facebook page.

This band draws their inspiration from hard-hitting funk, soul, R&B, and rock. Southpaw blends both original music and covers.

Contact Jared Leek for more information by calling (620) 224-9787.

Leek also owns Crooner’s Lounge next door at 117 S. Main.

Crooner’s is open from 5 to 9 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday with happy hour from 5-6 p.m.

The crew has been working for about a month on the restoration project in downtown Fort Scott.
