According to Bowers' “Encyclopedia” page 551, the Rivoli had a Reproduco organ made by the Operators Piano Co. at one time.

Actualy the Rivoli opened as the Elite Theatre on Nov, 9,1911.
In 1925 the Elite was completely remodeled and re-opened as the Rivoli on Oct. 5, 1925. In July of 1928 the Kilgen organ was installed and a new facade and marquee where placed on the front of the building. The Rivoli closed in 1955 and became a shoe store, it has been several retail establishments over the years and is currently a pet store. The upper portions of the 1928 facade are still there.
The Reproduco was installed in the 1925 re-model.
