Following several years of hard work by the Furness Theatre Organ Project Group, the work to install a Wurlitzer pipe organ into the superb Royalty Cinema in Bowness, Windermere will finally come to fruition this weekend when international organist Chris Powell is joined by David Shepherd and David Ivory for a Gala Concert on Saturday 6th October @ 2pm followed by a showing of Harold Lloyd's 'Safety Last' (silent film) with David Ivory at the organ.
The 2-manual, 7 rank organ was originally installed in Ohio, USA before being shipped to the Rex Cinema in Stratford, London in 1934. It will now sing out gracefully in the wonderful lakeland setting and finally fills in the void of theatre organ music in this most beautiful part of the British Isles!
Advanced booking is advised by phoning either 01229 466862 or 01539 443364.
