The Hartwig Theatre originally had a 2/4 Style 135A Wurlitzer (opus #224) installed in 1919. The instrument was later moved to a local church. The organ is currently installed in the Nevada City Music Hall. The Hartwig was located on N. Idaho St., the name was changed to Roberta in 1951 and the theatre closed in 1955. This should be listed as the Roberta Theatre with an AKA of Hartwig Theatre.

The obituary of W. J. Hartwig (quoted here) said that he had built the Hartwig Theatre in 1917.
