The Princess Theatre was the crown jewel of the Murfreesboro town square. It was operated by Martin Theatres and is listed as operating from at least 1941 thru 1950….. If you have any information about this former Art Deco style masterpiece please update.

The Princess may have had a Reproduco piano/organ unit for silent movie accompaniment.

There is a photo of the Princess showing Sally of the Sawdust, a 1925 W.C. Fields feature. Looks like the Princess may have had 2 incarnations.

David Bowers “Encyclopedia of Automated Musical Instruments” p. 551 mentions the installation of a Reproduco organ (probably a photoplayer) at the Princess Theatre, Murfreesboro, Tennessee. There is no date on that reference, but certainly before 1930.
