Theater Organs


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Old-time movie theater organs were designed to play along with silent movies. They were huge beasts with thousands of pipes and other musical instruments. We found some of the few remaining dinosaurs of the Jazz Age and the curious characters who keep them making music.
