Interesting comment on the organ. A theatre organist friend of mine, Walter Kimble, began his career as a very young man playing the organ at the Magnolia Theatre in Titusville. Also, per the 1944 FILM DAILY YEARBOOK OF MOTION PICTURES, Titusville had two movie theatres—the Alamo and the Magnolia, both with 400 seats. The Alamo is listed as closed.

According to theaterorgans.com, a Wurlitzer organ was shipped to this theater in 1926 which was later repossessed and installed in a church in Windsor, Ontario.

This one was really news to me. I knew there was a Van Croix Theatre in Melbourne, but not Titusville. Undoubtedly built and owned by the same family. To my knowledge the Magnolia was Titusville’s only theatre. Is the old Van Croix building still standing.
