THEATER ORGANS UPDATE
The Mighty Wurlitzer organ from the Paramount Theatre, seen here on Monday, Nov. 24, 2008, at the old NAPA auto parts store on 2nd Ave. SE in Cedar Rapids, was laying on its back during the June floods, damaging the back of the instrument. With the help of several Cedar Rapids organizations, Mike Wilson, 84, of Cedar Rapids, is trying to get funding to restore the Mighty Wurlitzer organ and the (not shown) Rhinestone Barton organ.
