|The Pickwick organ looked very different when the theatre opened in 1928 with its ART DECO morif. The console was decorated to match the theme of the auditorium. Some years later the console lost this decoration and is now painted in a very common white garb. The organ has been maintained through the
years by CATOE members and at present is receiving the TLC from crew chief Mark Hanson. The organ Solo chamber was vandalized before CATOE began maintaining the organ and the missing Kinura had to be replaced and the missing Orchestral Oboe replaced by a Posthorn.
