A mid-1920’s ad for Reproduco organs lists an installation of one of their photoplayers at the Norwood Theatre. That would predate this building. Was this a remodeling of an older structure or maybe the replacement of an older theatre? Several other Reproduco organs were installed in Birmingham in the 1910’s.

The Norwood Theatre was featured in the December 27, 1924, issue of Exhibitors Trade Review. There is a photo. The article says that the Norwood had a $5,000 pipe organ. That must have been the Reproduco that Will Dunklin mentioned.
