A Wurlitzer organ Opus 1949 Style 220SP was installed in the Plaza Theater on 8/31/1928.

That’s a great photo of the Plaza Theater Charles. Do any interior remnants remain of the theater auditorium? Did Restoration Hardware renovate/destroy the auditorium space, or does it only occupy what was the old Spanish courtyard portion and lobby space?

From the way I read it, the article is from the Kansas City PUBLIC Library. It is not the thetre web site. Paul Salley is a theatre historian. It might have been his article that is in the KC Public Library. It seems the only epidemic going on is your abuse of others postings. From the postings that I have read of yours we need not worry about your intellectual properties. I have not found one theatre that you have posted to this web site, just condemnatiuon of what others have posted.

Another plagiarist amongst us. The description above is word for word from the theatre website. There appears to be an epidemic going on here. Have you not heard of intellectual property.

Yes, the Boller Brothers was the firm of record responsible for the design of the Plaza Theater.

Tour of Missouri, Oklahoma and Kansas Theatres in 2004
From June 26 through July 1, 2004 the Theatre Historical Society of America will tour a number of theatres in Kansas City Missouri and surrounding areas, including theatres in Lamar, Joplin, Richmond, St. Joseph and Springfield, MO, as well as Miami, OK, and these cities in Kansas: Leavenworth, Kansas City, Emporia, El Dorado, Augusta, Wichita, Hutchinson, McPherson, Salina, Concordia, and Topeka. More information is contained on their web site: http://www.HistoricTheatres.org and special photos and information concerning the Kansas City theatres: UPTOWN and the MIDLAND is available on this temporary page of their site at: http://www2.hawaii.edu/~angell/thsa/fromarch.html A glossy brochure about this “Heart of America” Conclave is available from the Society’s headquarters listed on their homepage, via E-mail to the Ex. Director, or via snail mail. Membership in the Society is not required to attend the Conclave and tour the theatres, but fees do apply as detailed on their site. Bring your camera and lots of film, for it is usually difficult or impossible to enter these theatres for photos, and some of them will surely not be with us in the years to come.
