Notes: Information from Stephen Hall. Organ was restored in late 1970s by members of Cedar Rapids Theater Organ Society (CRATOS). Organ was in regular use for concerts and silent film accompaniment until damaged by flooding in summer 2008. Organ is again being restored by CRATOS while the city decides the fate of the theater (the city has owned the theater since 1975 and had converted it to a performing arts center used by the local symphony and theater).
