A Robert-Morton organ was installed in the Washington Theatre in 1925.

From a New York Times October 1938 article concerning the War of the Worlds radio broadcast:

In Orange, N. J., an unidentified man rushed into the lobby of the Lido Theatre, a neighborhood motion picture house, with the intention of “warning” the audience that a meteor had fallen on Raymond Boulevard, Newark, and was spreading poisonous gases. Skeptical, Al Hochberg, manager of the theatre, prevented the man from entering the auditorium of the theatre and then called the police. He was informed that the radio broadcast was responsible for the man’s alarm.
