In April, Astoria's Liberty Theater marks its 85th anniversary, and the public is invited to attend a special event marking the occasion.
Center stage at the April 5 event is the ribbon cutting for the theater's newly restored ticket kiosk, which has stood vigil in front of the Liberty Theater for many years.
The copper dome for the ticket kiosk, which had been found in a barn in the area last year, was returned and restored with the help of several community members and local businesses. Liberty representatives noted special thanks to the Beelar family, Skip Hauke, Hal and Jeanyse Snow, P&L Johnson Mechanical and Rickenbach Construction.
The ribbon-cutting and kiosk dedication ceremony take place Monday, April 5, at 4 p.m. at the Liberty Theater, at the corner of 12th and Commercial streets.
