Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- The theatre seated 1,000. In 1944, Balcom & Vaughan moved the organ to Portland's Ice Arena Rink as their opus 401. The instrument later went to a party in Lower Alameda, CA. and was installed by Cleo DeAutrey. It was later purchased in the late 1960s by Dave Markworth and installed by him in his Portland, Oregon home. In January 2005, the console appeared on the eBay Internet auction site.
