Thanks to whomever created this page!

According to the “Encyclopedia of the American Theatre Organ”, pg. 631, the “Majestic Theatre” in Rochester, Pennsylvania, had a Seeburg-Smith theatre pipe organ installed in 1920.

The size of the organ (# of manuals/# of ranks) is not given in the book (not known), but they do have info on the blower, which was/is serial #H637, and was 1 and ½ horsepower, with an output of 10" of static wind pressure. Again, this was a Seeburg-Smith organ, meaning it was built in part of the Seeburg piano and orchestrion factory in Chicago under Smith’s supervision, during the time of the Seeburg-Smith partnership.

I’d love to know more about this theatre and/or organ, and if either exist today!
