I have one of the art deco chandeliers that came out of the lobby and a matinee sign form the theatre.

That particular organ was a Kilgen tracker that was previously installed in the Cinderella on Cherokee Str.

Prior to the time the Kingsland was sold by the Lesters the St.LTOS had been installing the little 2m/8r Majestic Wurli. We were putting it in the left chamber after having gutted the chamber of air conditioning systems. After 2/3’s instalation the theatre was sold and we had to pull it out and that would have been it’s newest home before the club put it in the Fox lobby. We nver got it to playing status before removal
Originally the Kingland had a small KIlgen TO and it whereabouts are unknown.
Standing in the Kingsland spot now is an Aldis store
