Database Manager on December 27, 2017:

The console and many parts of the organ are from the Brooklyn Fox Theatre, Brooklyn, New York (1928 Wurlitzer, Op. 1904); they had been relocated to the Cardinal Music Palace restaurant in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and were installed here in 1986. The organ also contains parts from the 1926 Wurlitzer (Opus 1370) built for the Legion Theatre, Alamosa, Colorado.
