Allen Organ Console Arrives At St. George Theatre

posted by Jean on December 2, 2004 at 7:29 am

STATEN ISLAND, NY — An Allen organ console was expected to arrive at the St. George Theatre yesterday.

It is on loan through our friends at the New York Theatre Organ Society (NYTOS). The theater will “borrow” it for about a month until another suitable console can be found.

In the meanwhile, the Allen will help to “re-open” the theater in time for its gala 75th anniversary on December 4th.

We look forward to a HUGE attendance for this rare and wonderful theater experience, which includes a red carpet, Klieg lights, entertainment, important notables, AND the “Mighty Allen!”

Hope to see you there!

I am writing a report on St. George Theater, trying to prove that the theater should become a landmark.
Can I obtain any information on its history.

Go to the St. George branch of the library, where you will find the Staten Island Advance on microfilm from opening day, 1929, etc. If you need, I have a copy of the paper so any information you need, I can obtain for you. Just e-mail me.
