Listed in a September 1920 ad in Paramount Week as a participant in a special exhibiting event.

According to “The Encyclopedia of the American Theatre Organ” by David L. Junchen, pg. 630, the “Columbia Th.” in Far Rockaway, New York had a two-manual, 8-rank Smith theatre pipe organ installed at some point.

No other details, like installation date, blower info, or nameplate (Smith, Seeburg-Smith etc) were available when the book was published.

Does anybody know more about this organ, and where it (or its parts) is/are today?

Does anybody know more about this theatre?

Thanks a lot!
