I have the organ console and it came to me in pieces. Work has been started on its restoration. A picture of the console is in Dave Junchens Encyclopedia of the American Theatre Organ Vol. 1 (Kimball Organ section)

I have the relay from the original 3 manual 12 rank Kimball organ from the Grand Theatre playing the organ in my home. The console is in Wisconsin; I have no idea where the remainder of the organ is.

The Sablosky (Norris Amusement Co.) also operated the Ridge Pike D-I and the Valley Forge D-I theatres. In the late 50’s and early 60’s The two D-I’s and the Norris theatre were operated By Budco Theatres but still owned by N. A. Co. rs
