This is great that this vintage theatre is being restored! Here’s more info on it and photos: http://pstos.org/instruments/or/pendleton/rivoli.htm

The theatre’s original 2/7 Wurlitzer organ (style 170, opus #435) later spent time in a rink in Seattle before being sold to a fellow in Bremerton, Washington. I don’t know if he still has it, or if he does, that he’d eventually be willing to sell it back to the theatre, but you never know…

This is from Boxoffice in February 1954:

PENDLETON, ORE.-Cinemascope has made its debut at the Rivoli Theater in Pendleton. Owner John Mattlock says this latest improvement culminates a series of changes that cost about $14,000.
