Database Manager on September 23, 2009:

Identified through online information from Will Dunklin. -- This organ, designated a "style 235" replaced an earlier Möller in the same location. The organ was removed ca. 1961. The Loew's State Theatre was torn down in 1972. This theatre is occasionally referred to as the Loew's Metropolitan; however, this amateur historian has never found any reference to that name, including original blue prints.
