The Dream Theatre had a Louisville Pipe Organ Company “Uniphone” organ. It was (and still is) 5 ranks. Tibia 16-2, Diapason 8-4, VDO 8-4, Oboe Horn 8 and Vox Humana 8-4. It has been kept intact and is still playing. It is in a private residence in Shelbyville, Indiana. It is one of only 2 remaining horseshoe consoles built by LPO.

This web page about the Ritz Theatre, says that its architect, George V. Bedell, also designed the Dream Theatre.

Found this article doing family genealogy research. I believe my grandfather actually played this organ at one time, if it is the original. He lived at 2317 Station Street until his job with the railroad took him to Cincinnati around 1925-26, and my father lived and grew up at 2309 Station Street until the mid 1940’s. My father told me of his father working at the “Dream” where he played piano and organ and this is where he met my grandmother. If anyone has photos or information regarding this, it would be much appreciated. Post a comment here and I can provide my contact information. Thank you.
