Mighty Wurlitzer roars Oct. 21st for Halloween warm-up

Ken Double

I am writing because it is an exciting time for the Long Center Theatre Organ Society and the Mighty Wurlitzer! We will have plenty to report in our next issue of Vox Wurlitzer, which will hit your mail boxes and emails soon. But in the meantime, here are some great opportunities for you to enjoy the Mighty Wurlitzer of Long Center.

On Sunday, October 21st at 2:30 p.m., yours truly returns to provide a horror-filled preview to Halloween. The 1920 silent film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde features the virtuoso touch of John Barrymore, then the finest actor in American theatre, making his mark in film. Tickets to hear the Mighty Wurlitzer and see “The Great Profile” in this piece of classic cinema are just $5 at the door. What a deal!! This is being done in full partnership with Long Center, and we say “Thanks” to Eric Van Cleave and the entire Long Center staff for these ventures that are so good for the continuing exposure of the Wurlitzer to the public. And thanks for all of the members of the LCTOS Board who commit so much time and effort for our one-of-a-kind Wurlitzer pipe organ!

There will be other special events after the New Year, and of course, on Saturday, June 8th, it’s the Ken Double Variety Show #37!

So mark your calendars for a spooky October 21st and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Bring the family and friends for holiday movie fun and the Mighty Wurlitzer. And look for your next issue of Vox Wurlitzer and lots more great news about our great theatre pipe organ.

See you soon!!
