Curious Conversations, Inspired by the Fox’s Mighty Wurlitzer Organ

SUPPORT

When the Fox Theatre opened in 1930, part of the technological and artistic wonder it brought to Tucson was a Mighty Wurlitzer Theatre Organ.  These organs are incredible instruments, with literally thousands of pipes, as well as numerous other air-controlled instruments (drums, horns, whistles, marimbas) to create all the music and sound effects for silent movies, without any amplification.  As the movie experience changed through the years, the Fox’s original organ was disassembled.  Yet no longer!  Over the past few years, this remarkable instrument has been restored to the Fox.  Come to the theatre or hop on Zoom to join the conversation and learn about this organ and its history from the very person who has been restoring it!  Please register above.
