Chevalier Organ Society
Chevalier Theatre is home to one of New England’s rare Mighty Wurlitzer theatre pipe organs, a 1922 model originally installed at a Dayton, Ohio, theater and donated by the Maine chapter of the American Theatre Organ Society. The nonprofit Chevalier Theatre Organ Society was formed to restore, install, and maintain the Wurlitzer, and to raise all necessary funds. Once operating, the organ will be used for concerts, silent movie accompaniment, educational programs, and enhancing other entertainment.
