The Wurlitzer pipe organ Opus 86 built for the Stratford Theatre went to a church, then to a private owner. That owner has recently donated the organ to Soo Theatre Project, Inc. to be installed in the Soo Theatre in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan as part of Phase Three of the Soo Theatre renovation.

The Stratford opened in 1916, designed by Joseph P. Jogerst, and could seat 1137. At some point during the 30s, it received an elegant Art Deco facelift, with a cream and salmon colored terra-cotta facade, and new triangular marquee. After closing years earlier, the Stratford reopened in the summer of 1985 offering a free movie series. At this time, seating was reduced to about 600.

However, the theater was closed again at the end of that summer, and has remained vacant since. Cinema Treasures Link.
