A Mighty WruliTizer Theater Pipe Organ, Opus 1637, 2/3, manual/ranks, keyboards/sets of pipes, was shipped to this theatre from the WurliTizer factory in North Tawawanda, New York on May 18, 1927. It had piano console, 219 pipes, an 88 note piano (with mandolin attachment), and a 18 note cathedral chimes.

Every showman regards the WurliTizer with admiration for its dependability and versatility.

The correct form the the architectural firm’s name is Van Ryn & DeGelleke. Henry J. Van Ryn and Gerrit DeGelleke specialized in institutional projects, especially schools, and the Jackson might have been their only foray into the design of commercial theaters.
