Originally built as a chicken coop, the Organ Loft has been screening silent movies since 1984. The movies are accompanied by a Wurlitzer organ. Parts of the instrument are made from organs originally installed at the Capitol Theatre, Salt Lake City and the Egyptian Theatre, Ogden.

The map says 13th South, it should be 33rd South at Edison Street. The big neon sign on the building reads: EDISON STREET, the new name for Organ Loft which appears as an ‘aka’ in small letters at the bottom of the sign.

Larry Bray’s Organ Loft’s Wurlitzer’s original 19 ranks came from the Staten Island Paramount Theatre which consisted of two 3 manual waterfall consoles These were turned into the 5 manual console which you see today. He supposedly acquired the Paramount organ after selling off the smaller theatre organs that had been installed in his uncle’s chicken coop. Subsequent additions to the organ’s pipework now totals 34 ranks. Over the years a handful of LP’s were recorded on the organ by the late Gus Farney. I believe that Lyn Larsen was the last to record an album on this Wurlitzer.
