Like countless thousands of silent motion picture fans AND the pleasure of of witnessing Dennis James at the organ console, all I can say is “I’m GREEN” with envy.

Congratulations to all who keep the Blue Mouse Theatre open!!!

I forgot to mention that Mr. James makes San Francisco’s Castro Theatre Wurlitzer sound the best in the west!
