The American Music Hall was opened in 1910, and sat at the corner of 18th and Farnam Streets in Omaha, Nebraska. A few years later the name was changed to New Morris Theater, then finally the Strand Theater.

This theater burnt to the ground in the early-1920’s.

A Hillgreen-Lane theater organ opus 430 size 3/20 was installed in the Strand Theater in 1916. Note: Later moved to Ritz Theater in Omaha Nebraska.

It was also named the New Morris Theatre at one time after the American Music Hall.

The Strand Theatre that got the Hillgreen-Lane organ in 1916 was a different house, located on Douglas Street. It was demolished in 1917 or 1918 to make way for the Omaha Athletic Club. The name Strand was probably moved to this house at that time. I don’t know what became of the organ.
