Originally Wurlitzer Style 260 (3/15) built for the Capitol Theatre, Sydney, Australia. In early years, the Saxophone rank was exchanged for the Krumet rank of the Adelaide Regent Theatre, but the stop tabs were unchanged.We received the most recent update for this note from Database Manager on April 09, 2020.
The organ was used at the Capitol until mid-1957; in 1963 it was adopted by the Theatre Organ Society of Australia members who got it playing again. When the Capitol was closed in 1972, the TOSA was given the option to buy the organ; they removed the organ to storage where it remained for 16 years. In 1988, the organ was installed in the Orion Centre, a former theatre in the Sydney suburb of Campsie, by TOSA members headed by John Parker, organ builder in New Zealand. At this time two ranks were added: an English Post Horn and a Solo String Celeste.We received the most recent update for this note from Database Manager on April 09, 2020.
