The original Wurlitzer pipe organ, in the Bay Theatre was put back into this historic Atmospheric style movie palace as part of a $5.5 million restoration.
The theatre originally opened as the Fox Theatre on February 14, 1930 and from September 2, 1933 was renamed Bay Theatre. Later converted into a triplex, it closed as a movie theatre in 1993.
The Wurlitzer organ was constructed in 1930 and has been rebuilt using the original blueprint. The organ was purchased in 1989 and kept in storage for 12 years. The old Wurlitzer was a key part of the theater’s renovation, which was completed in 2002 when the Bay Theatre reopened as the Meyer Theatre.
