Database Manager on July 16, 2016:

The organ was assembled by a team who spent two years acquiring organ parts and restoring them. The 1926 Wurlitzer (op. 1541) console is from Mann's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. The pipes are from the Wurlitzer (op. 1825) in Loew's Theatre in Syracuse, New York.
