Just added an incredible photo of The Court Theatre in 1927, a year or two before being torn down to build the Dominion Theatre. Credit: Stockholm Transport Museum Photo, courtesy of the Who Knows East – Old Photographs Facebook page. Since The Court Theatre has no CT page, and occupied the same site and address as the Dominion Theatre, I posted it here.

adamghost, your above link does not work. Do you have a way to download the photo and post it in the Photos Section instead?

Below copy courtesy of Matt Hyde via The Denver Eye Facebook page. (Under a vintage pic I also re-posted to the Isis photos Section.)

Had the largest Wurlitzer in the world for a short time (1915-1917). Of course, when Wurlitzer built a larger one in California in 1917, Denver said ‘this will not do’, and had Wurlitzer build an even larger one for the Municipal Auditorium in 1918. Both consoles survive today. IIRC, the ISIS console is now in California, and the MA console is in Oregon.
