1/25/2010 - John Lauter
I went past the lyric in the very early 70s and marveled at how original the exterior was at that time. The marquee was still the original 1920s sign, which was increasingly rare by then. One story I was told was that the soil under the auditorium floor had given, or washed out and that the theatre had closed a long time ago, as early as the late 30s, and just sat, like a time capsule for years. Back in the 70s I wondered if there was an organ inside. Years later I found out that there was indeed, a very small Robert-Morton (brand) pit organ, a small economy model made for very small theaters, a smaller console and two cabinets that were perhaps 5''h x 5''w x 2''d that were pretty much plug ''n play for back then.

It is now in a private collection here in Michigan.
