I rebuilt this organ in the late 50’s when I was attending IBM classes. Used my own money and did it in my spare time. Great to have stumbled upon this site. At least the theatre is still there!! I still have a tape of that original concert somewhere around my house!!

A few local organ buffs found out about it and helped tune it and we had a concert by the guy that played it originally. He played it out of the pit!

Is/was this theatre haunted?

Thanks to the fellow who has taken these current photos of balcony, now used for storage. They show wonderful Art Deco detail.
