The Lake Theater is visible in this picture just to the right of the Liberty Theater. Across the street, but exactly one block away going west (also in the middle of the block) was the City Theater. Just past the third intersection going west from the Liberty and Lake was the State Theater, next door to Doc's Hiway Bar, and again, in the middle of the block, just west of Colfax on the south side of Main in Benton Harbor.

There was also a theater called Lake that was locate in between the other two but on the North side of the street. I know it existed, I used to go to all three when I was a kid.
