News about ATOS and the world of Theatre Organ internationally.

A smooth transition; a new Board of Directors; a “calming of the storm;” a great convention; and two other major events are an indication that the American Theatre Organ Society is back to conducting its business well, and is moving forward.

The Cleveland Convention was a great success and you will read all about it in the upcoming September-October issue of the journal. In making the transition to the new board of directors, we offer our sincere “Thanks” to outgoing board members Lee Lanier, Bob Evans (who served nine years as Secretary), Juan Cardona, Jr., and John Ledwon.

"Hi I'm Jared Goldinger, winner of the 2016 George Wright Memorial Fellowship. We started off on a looooonnnng 4 hour bus trip to the senate theatre to see the 4/37 Wurlitzer with Richard Hills performing. I was expecting much but not this much; I was absolutely amazed by the size, the power, and even the swell shades with the faint lights inside the chambers.
