Clark Wilson & the “Mighty Morton” Theatre Organ
Now celebrating his 22nd CAPA Summer Movie Series, Wilson has been named in numerous Who's Who and Men of Achievement editions and was the 1998 American Theatre Organ Society (ATOS) Organist of the Year. An acclaimed organ technician and consultant, he has also been professionally involved with more than 200 pipe organ installations to date and has earned the ATOS Technician of Merit award, the only person to receive both ATOS distinctions.
The magnificent “Mighty Morton” theatre organ was installed in 1928 at a cost of $21,000. It is equipped with a number of sound effects made by bells, cymbals, drums, whistles, and marbles (to make the sound of waves). The pipes and sound effects for the organ are located behind the large gold drapes on either side of the stage.
Organist David Fleischer will also provide live organ accompaniment at select movie screenings.
