Liberty Hall turned 100 this year, celebrating with style in the form of a two-day, sold-out extravaganza performance (and street party!) from the Flaming Lips and proving it’s not too old to rock.
In its history, it’s gone from Bowersock Opera House to a nightclub to the local arthouse movie theater, but as Lawrence music-lovers of all stripes can attest, sometimes the movies go to the Little Theater and the big shows get put on.
From its days as an abolitionist meeting space, the venue has retained its attraction as a local institution for gathering — only now for entertainment.
