A little info on the brooklyn fox wurlitzer theatre organ. In gig harbor washington
The only thing that is left of the brookyn wurlitzer is its console. The rest of the organ
Was parted out in the early 70’s. By the time the organ got to the cardinal music palance
It was just the brooklyn console and the pipe work all came from grauman’s theatre
In los angeles. The same is true with the gig harbor washington installation. The brooklyn
Console & pipe’s from the grauman.
Well it’s dec 31, 2010. If the oriental was still with us she would be turning
83yrs old tonight!! There are still a few ranks of pipes from her wurlitzer
Theatre pipe organ that live on to this day.
I am so thankful that the old paramount theatre still stands to this day.
When one looks at the large one of a kind maquee and all those lights
It gives a feel of what broadway was when the paramount and its
Sister theatre’s such as the broadway theatre, the fox, and liberty theatre
To name a few lined broadway and gave a person the feeling of somthing
Magical. And when one looks at the old paramount building and its many
Lights that light up the night one truly gets a look and feel of a by gone era.
The paramount theatre building and its outstanding marquee shows us
A little reminder of the magic of broadway from the past.
The oriental was truly one of a kind. In may & nov of 1967 the oriental theatre
And its mighty wurlitzer theatre pipe organ were out in the spot light when
Mr. George wright played to outstanding concert’s on the oriental’s wurlitzer
Pipe organ. George wright truly one of a kind in theatre organ history playing
At truly one of a kind theatre. If anyone out there was lucky enough to hear
One of these concert’s please share with us the magic of george at the oriental.
The color pic posted by tc is very nice. What I hope to find is a color pic of
The grand lobby with the stairway and both dragons on both sides of the
Is there anyone out there that knows of any color pics of the inside of
The oriental theatre? It sure would be great to see this one of a kind
Theatre in color.
