As part of the restoration of the Temple Theater, the old movie palace has begun the slow reconstruction of its original Wurlitzer organ. Built in 1922, the organ played along with the theater’s silent films and continued to be used in the old theater until 1938 when it was sold to the Coon Valley Lutheran Church.
When the restoration of the theater began in 1994, members of the Associates to Restore the Temple Theater retrieved the organ and brought it back to the Temple. Organ enthusiasts began to restore the organ earlier this year, taking it apart in anticipation of repairing and restoring the classic piece. The group are also members of the La Crosse Scenic Bluffs Chapter of the American Theater Organ Society.
The theater today is now open.
