Built in 1910 and located at W. 5th Street and South B Street in downtown Oxnard – the same intersection where, ironically enough, a new multiplex sprang up a few years ago.

According to “The Encyclopedia of the American Theatre Organ” by David L. Junchen, pg. 628,

an “unidentified theatre” in Oxnard had a two manual, three rank Smith theatre pipe organ installed at some point.

No date or other details are given in the book.

Looking through the pages for various Oxnard theatres in this website, it seems possible that the Aztec Theatre, or the Strand Theatre, could have been a home to this instrument at one point, since Smith installed most of their organs between about 1916 and 1926. Does anybody know more?
