A Barton theater organ size 3/9 was installed in the Dixon Theater in 1922. Note: Divided Manual.

They have replaced the marquee since the photo above was taken and it looks great. They were re-upholstering the seats as they could afford them and that project may be finished by now. I will try to get a current picture of the front and interior.

I am interested in knowing when and how this theater was restored. Also, could you please advise me as to who headed up the the project? Thanks.
