The Fremont was converted to apartments (with its entrance on Bond Street [it was right on the corner]) in 1925; it has served in that function since then. Looking closely, one can still see the outline of the original theater on 46th Avenue.

WurliTzer Theatre Pipe Organ, Opus 29, a 2 manual/6 rank was shipped to this theatre on December 31, 1913. It was reposessed by the WurliTzer company, rebuilt as Opus 70 and shipped to the Al Ringling Theatre in Baraboo, Wisconsin in 1915. In about 1928 the Ringling Theatre got a Mighty Barton Organ. The WurliTzer, minus the percussion and sound effects went to a church in Baraboo where it was used until around 1970. I don’t know what happened to the organ after that.
