In 1947 Neal Ellens was the manager.
The Colonial had a Robert Morton Theater Pipe Organ. First it had a 2/5 (manuals/ranks, keyboards/sets of pipes), and later a 2/8. Anyone know what happened to either organ?
The Robert Morgan Organ Company was located in Van Nuys, California. Harold J. Werner the head of the company named the company after his new-born son Robert Mort Werner.
What ever happened to Robert Mort Werner? Later in life he joined NBC as a producer of the “Today” show, produced the “Tonight” show with Jack Parr and introduced such shows as “Bonanza” “Star Trek” and “Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In” and was President of the American Academy of Television and Arts and Sciences.

Look at the photos! How many more windows does it need?Seems to me it already has plenty of windows?
The Orpheum had a Mighty WurliTizer Theater Pipe Organ. A 2/4 (manual/rank, keyboards/set of pipes) with a piano console. It had 280 pipes, a piano (with mandolin attachment), cathedral chimes, xylophone, glockenspiel, bass drum, kettle drum, cymbal, snare drum, tambourine, castanets, Chinese block, sleigh bells, horse hoofs, bird, auto horn, fire gong, siren, triangle, surf, train, fire gong, steamboat whistle, tom tom and door bell. Professor Earl Rogers had the fun of playing the Huge WurliTizer Organ opening night.
Anyone know what happened to the organ?
The Mighty WurliTizer Theater Pipe Organ in the Stanford, Opus 1825, a 4/20 (manual/ranks, keyboards/sets of pipes). It was originaly shipped to the Loews Theater in Syracuse, New York on January 13, 1928. In 1964 it was sold to a private owner in Glendale, California and in 1965 it was sold to another private owner in San Lorenzo, California. In 1995 it was sold to the Stanford and it is played all the time. Does it now have more ranks?
WurliTizer Church Pipe Organ Opus 274 Shipped to the San Francisco WurliTzer Store on January 16, 1920 and then on to the 1st Baptist Church in Martinez, California was also been sold to the Stanford several years ago, much to the chagrin of a former 1st Babist Church organist. He believes “they bought it for augmenting the installation there”.
There was an organ in the theater when it opened and it was removed. Anyone know anything about that organ or what happened to it?
Anyone know what happened to the Kilgen Theater Pipe Organ installed in the Kenwood in 1926?
From the April 29, 1939 BOXOFFICE MAGAZINE:
“A pipe organ with thirteen sets of pipes is a special presentation feature at the new Center. The instrument is spotted from overhead during performances and crosslighted when house illumination is on from special spots located above the exit sights.”
Anyone know anything about the organ or what happened to it?
The Grand Opening Ad mentions Bartley Sims at the Mammoth Organ, anyone know what kind of Theater Pipe Organ it was? Sometime in the theatres history the organ was probably removed, know what happened to it?

Mitzi Gaynor will be at the Music Box Theater here in Chicago tonight for the 55th anniversary along with Leonard Maltin as part of the FREE TCM Classic Film Festival.
At the Dominion Theater in London it opened April 21, 1958 and closed September 21, 1962, it ran just under 4 YEARS AND 6 MONTHS! An unbroken record run that will probably never be equaled. The film was shown about 2,320 times. If one is careful with 70mm prints, how many times can it be shown before it needs to be replaced?
I wonder why they didn’t show any 70mm CINERAMA, they did show other 70mm movies?
Love everyone of the “Remembering CINERAMA” series, that’s a lot of work, THANKS!
This would not map, but the theater is West of the Red Dot at Central Avenue, it is on the Southeast corner.
Good article, sums up the whole rotten mess really well, I would'nt want that guy living next door to me!
