After being closed since September 2009, the Liberty Theatre will officially re-open this week.

The three-day event begins on Thursday, with a St. Patrick’s Day showing of “Darby O’Gill and the Little People,” at 6 p.m., and continues on Friday, when the “Grease Sing-A-Long,” movie will hit the big screen at 5:30 and 8 p.m.

On Saturday, from 4 to 10 p.m., live music, food, beverages and raffle prizes will take center stage.

Camas’s Nuestra Mesa will be serving food, as well as beer, wine and margaritas in the theater’s upstairs 21-and-older lounge. The snack bar will be open for all ages.

During the benefit concert, performances are expected from The Go Project, Social Gravy, Jon Hecox, Bob Calhoun, Julia’s Misfortune and Storm Runner, as well as Camas School District students.

New operator Rand Thornsley has managed and owned small movie theaters — primarily in Alaska — for the past four decades.
