Does the theatre still have the Robert Morton organ?

Mr. Bill Hooper was in the process of restoring the organ when the University sold the theater to the city. From what I can gather, the city hired a couple of guys to maintain the place that we lets say less than qualified to do so. Bill got frustrated and stopped his work. I had done quite a bit of wiring in the organ chambers and soldering some pipes. At this point there is no telling what happen to the organ. But the last I saw the blower worked, all new air pipe and we were tooting pipes by hand.

There doesn’t seem to be a CT listing for Mobile’s Roxy Theatre. Here’s a photo incorrectly dated June, 1939. The movie didn’t have its world premiere engagements until December of that year: View link
