From 1914 a newsprint photo of the Ruby Theater in Chelan.

This photoplayer is mentioned on the history page of their website, though talked about in past tense as though it is no longer there.

I would imagine it was bought by a collector in the pacific northwest, since a simple glance through, for example, the AMICA directory seems to reveal a larger percentage of photoplayers in Oregon than in the other states in general. [however, the Ruby theatre is in Washington so perhaps this is a bad example].

I guess one of us should simply email the people at the Ruby Theatre and just ask what became of it.

Does anyone know what became of the American Photoplayer organ that was originally in this theatre? It was still in-place to the mid 1970s.

Here is an ad on eBay for a July 1960 schedule of films at the Ruby:
