Yes I do. Historical society’s are only as accurate as the information they are given. I found the Viner Organ link on a fluke looking for additional photos. Thank you for adding this unique theater.

DavidZornig commented about Crest Theater on Nov 29, 2015 at 3:15 pm

The Crest was located at 65 West Market Street. The original building is still standing, and was converted into The Francis Shoppe, a women’s clothing store that opened there in 1961.

Status should be changed from Demolished to Closed.

Below is a link to the 08/13/57 Daily Banner newspaper story (left hand column), about the “Pay As You Please” format for “The Ten Commandments”. The manager John Phelps at the time said most patrons gave $1-$2, which after film rental costs was donated to the Will Rogers Memorial Hospital.

The pipe organ was apparently a much rarer Viner and not a Bartola. One of 5 installed specifically in theatres in New York between 1921 and 1926. The Ryley being the first in `21. Versus Bartola who built about 250 organs for theatres between 1918 and 1931 via Wikipedia.

There was also a Crest Theatre on Market Street, in addition to the Eagles and the Colonial. But I haven’t been able to find any other information on it, other than a 1955 photo on the Wabash Memories Facebook page. If anyone can find an address or build date, I’ll set up a CT page for it.
