May have used a Reproduco automatic piano/organ unit for film accompaniment at one time

I too found the reference in David Bowers “Encyclopedia of Automated Musical Instruments” p. 551 to the installation of a Reproduco organ at the Princess. There is no date on the list, but the implication is a date earlier than 1930.
