I’m trying to determine the approximate date of Dick Leibert’s retirement as Chief Organist. His obituary implies that this took place in l971. Yet programmes from later dates still have him listed. Can anyone help with this?

The Michigan Theater in Jackson was designed by Maurice Finkel as was the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor.

The new vertical is a bit smaller than the original which was actually too big for the facade of the theater. The new vertical is a better size.

The Michigan Theater has an original three manual thirteen rank Barton Theater Pipe organ. This instrument is maintained in excellent condition and is played prior to most film screenings. It is also used to accompany silent films to fill organ parts in compositions performed by the Ann Arbor Symphony. There are five staff organists.

Does the Columbia Theater have a pipe organ?
