Proctor’s Theatre was opened January 6, 1902 with 2,026 seats. It was later operated by Fox Theatres and renamed Fox’s Terminal Theatre. By 1941, the Terminal Theatre had been operated by the Skouras Theaters Corp. chain, and they had closed it. The Terminal Theatre was still listed as ‘Closed’ in 1943, and had gone from listings by 1950.

A MOLLER PIPE ORGAN, 3 Manual (keyboards)/12 Rank (sets of pipes) Opus 2251 was installed in 1916 that cost $4,000.00. In 1921 it was replaced by another MOLLER PIPE ORGAN, a 3 Manual/17 Rank, Opus 2740 that cost $7,000.00. Does anyone know what happened to these organs?

The M.P. Moller Organ Company is named for Mathias Peter Moller a native of Denmark. He founded the company in 1875 and it made over 11,000 organs on Prospect Street in Hagerstown, Maryland.

The organ affectionately known as the “MIGHTY MO” at the famous beautiful Atlanta’s Fox Theater is a Moller.
