Liberty Theatre - Vandalia, Illinois

The Liberty Theatre in Vandalia, Illinois was opened around 1910 as the Dixie. In the '30s, it was remodeled with the current Art Deco marquee.

 

It closed in 2008 and is now abandoned, looking rather the worse for the passage of time.

 

Still, the tiling behind the marquee remains bright and shiny enough to mirror structures across the street, and the red brick and blue and white enamel still have a cheery feel, if you overlook the peeling paint and broken bulbs.
