943 Liberty Avenue has had a very rich history over its nearly 100 years of existence. The building housed one of the last adult bookstores in operation on Liberty Avenue. In 2006, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust purchased the building, and the bookstore was closed in 2008. On November 3, 2017, the award-winning Arcade Comedy Theater relocated from their original location at 811 Liberty to 943 after an extensive renovation of the space. The building now includes two state-of-the-art theater spaces and a lounge. The Arcade Comedy Theater is Pittsburgh’s only nonprofit comedy theater.
