This is a completely free concert, and we’d love to see you there to support this event!
“The Capri’s ‘Wurlitzer’ Organ was installed by the South Australian division of the Theatre Organ Society of Australia (TOSA) in 1983. It has been progressively installed and is the only installation in the world that has glass-fronted chambers in a theatre or cinema.
Theatre organs were developed in the 1920s to accompany silent movies. The inaugural concert of the ‘Wurlitzer’ was held on the 2nd April 1983, with 4 keyboards and 13 sets of pipes (ranks). By 1994, there were 25 ranks and it currently has 29 ranks, making it the second largest in the Southern Hemisphere.” – Capri Theatre Website
