Welcome to the American Theatre Organ Society.

If you are one of our thousands of members, welcome to this site’s resources and enjoy the site. If you are new to our interest in theatre organs, we hope you will take some time to discover one of the music world's unique gems - the Mighty Theatre Organ and its home, the Movie Palace. It's been more than 100 years since Wurlitzer created its first theatre organ, and Barton, Robert-Morton, Kimball, and dozens of other companies created thousands of instruments, made to accompany silent films, and fill majestic movie palaces with glorious music. ATOS is proud to work with more than 55 local chapters across the U.S. and around the world, promoting the instrument, presenting concerts and silent films, developing young artists and technicians, providing scholarships, and most of all, having a lot of fun in the world of music. As always, we welcome suggestions for content that would be useful.

So take a moment. Find an instrument near you. Listen to some wonderful music using ATOS RADIO. or visit one of the many events available around the world listed on our Events List. Be introduced to an artist; or explore our art form's fascinating history and technology. We are delighted you found us.
If not a member, we hope you will join us. Everything you need to do so is right here. Be prepared for what we like to call a musical "WOW!" moment. Get set for the mighty theatre organ and ATOS. Welcome again!
Richard Neidich
Chairman of the Board
