Governor Inslee’s relaxed rules allows movie theaters to reopen

For social distance purposes, every other row will be blocked off. When a party selects their seats, a 3-seat buffer will be placed so those seats will be unoccupied for that showing. 

For the present, the Liberty will operate a limited schedule Wednesday through Sunday and be closed Monday and Tuesday.  

Liberty Theatre staff asks for patrons’ patience as they work through these new procedures. It is important to purchase tickets online, check in at the front box office and place snack bar orders, which will be delivered into the theatre for you.  Late arrivals will not be seated once the lights go down.
