Remember when Auckland's historic Wurlitzer pipe organ entertained thousands each year at Avondale's Hollywood Cinema? With the sale of the theatre last year the Wurlitzer had to be removed but planning is now well underway for the organ's installation in a new home.

To celebrate the music and memories of the theatre organ, the Wurlitzer Organ Trust of Auckland in association with MusicPlanet, is presenting a special show with Melbourne keyboard artist Scott Harrison at an Allen digital theatre organ - the closest we can get to the sounds of the mighty Wurlitzer.

The show will include guest artists, Auckland Dixie Band "BBC" performing with Scott and the organ, plus a short silent movie featuring footage of the Wurlitzer Organ Factory in North Tonawanda, New York, in the 1920s when the company was shipping a complete organ a day to meet orders from theatres world-wide. Auckland's Wurlitzer was shipped from this factory on October 18, 1926 - 90 years ago this year!

Tickets on sale at the door on the day from 1:15 pm.
