Found some good historic pictures in the Library of Congress page and can be seen at:

Any info on the 3/23 Hillgreen-Lane organ Opus 578? Is it still there or has it been sold?

My only fear is that PURA may demolish this beautiful building. Does anyone know if the pipe organ is still there?

I has not realized that the Plaza had re-opened! Congratulations to the people of El Paso on the completion of this restoration. I remember it well from around 1960. Hope the WurliTzer still sounds the same.

This beautifully ornate theater has been demolished – a victim of total neglect. The Robert Morton theater pipe organ, however, was recovered and has been donated to the local historical society. It is presently being installed in a historic building just a short distance from the former Plaza Theater. Apparently no effort was made to preserve any of the ornate moldings/castings from the elegant facade. A tragic loss. I have some pictures of the theater and the Robert Morton Pipe Organ.
