Database Manager on December 22, 2017:

This organ began life as a Wurlitzer 3/15 260 SP (Opus. 1726) built in 1927 for the Denver Theatre in Denver, Colorado. It was purchased by Organ Stop Pizza in the early 1970s, and its restoration, enlargement, and installation completed in 1975...then 23 ranks. In 1997 it got a new 4-man. console, and has been enlarged bit-by-bit over the years.
