Database Manager on July 02, 2016:

"In 1989, a sparkling new three-manual console (originally from the United Artists Theatre in Detroit [Wurlitzer, Op. 1824]) was wired into the 14 ranks that played. In the winter of 1991-92, the Crome Organ Company, assisted by Carlton Smith, completed an installation of 21 ranks of mostly Wurlitzer pipe work, providing the state of Indiana its largest in-theatre pipe organ."
