Replacing the organ at the Palace Theatre
ALBANY, NY — I wrote to the manager of the Palace theatre about its organ which was removed some years ago. I suggested he replace it, and brought up the organ that was mentioned on Cinema Treasures. This is his reply:
Thank you for your message regarding the Theatre’s organ.
Although we do get a few such suggestions throughout the year, at this time there is no active plan to replace the organ at the Palace. Do you know of any community organization who might be interested in developing a grassroots movement to raise the necessary funds to accomplish this? If so, please have a representative contact me here at the Theatre. As a not-for-profit arts organization, we’re open to all sorts of ideas.
Thank you for your interest!
George P. Kansas
Director of Development
Perhaps there is some Cinema Treasures member that can help this theatre. It is such a shame the organ is gone.
