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.

There is an advertisement for The Princess Theatre, Columbia, Tennessee, from Crescent Amusement for the motion picture “The Heritage of the Desert” with Bebe Daniels in the Nashville Tennessean newspaper on March 2, 1924, page 43.
