Database Manager on July 18, 2016:

The basis of this organ was the 3/11 "Balaban 1A" Wurlitzer, Op. 2171 (factory date: Dec. 4, 1931), built for the Paramount Theatre in Glens Falls, New York. It was acquired by Mr. Aveni in 1985. Over the years, the organ has been enlarged by Doug Powers and others to 60 ranks. A new 4m console (replica of the Brooklyn Paramount) was built by Ken Crome.
