Database Manager on June 12, 2006:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This was the reinstallation of M.P. Möller's opus 3128, 1921 -- originally built for the Hill Street Theatre in Los Angeles, California. The Möller opus list gives the size of the original organ as 54 registers. David Junchen's Encyclopedia of the American Theatre Organ - Vol. I lists the organ as a 3/13. Balcom and Vaughan added a 61-pipe, tenor C 8' Dulciana in 1949 as their opus 495, and records the size of the organ then as 13-ranks.
