This 1929 Robert-Morton theatre organ is playing in the Landmark Loew's Jersey Theatre, Jersey City, NJ. It is a 4 manual, 23 rank "Wonder Morton". Five were built for large movie palaces in and around NYC. The current organ, restored and installed by the non-profit Garden State Theatre Organ Society between 1997 - 2007, was originally in the Loew's Paradise Theatre (Bronx).
Ralph Ringstad, Jr. is one of the house organists. Ralph is playing the organ for this video. The awesome and powerful organ can be heard, seen, and felt before most movies at Loew's. There are special organ events a few times a year typically featuring it with bands, soloists, and accompaniment for silent films.
