Boy, do I wish I was over there! I play for silent film presentations in the UK [next one the Scarborough Film Festival up in North Yorkshire]. But silent shows are becoming rarer with fewer programmes around. I wish you all the very best and loads of support for this great venture!! Terry Ladlow [.uk]
Terrific! I’m a big theatre-organ enthusiast, and love the fact the original Wurlitzer will return to its home! I live in Oregon, and will certainly try to make my way down to Dunsmuir to check this baby out!
