Bonus Feature – The Egyptian Theatre’s Wonderful Wurlitzer

Located in Coos Bay, Oregon, the Egyptian Theatre is home to the last remaining Wurlitzer pipe organ in Oregon which is still playing in its original location.

This short film features a demonstration of the historic instrument, with interviews of Paul Quarino, an original and long-time Organ Grinder performer who is now a caretaker of the Egyptian Theatre Wurlitzer, and Lee Littlefield, who has been performing at the Egyptian since 1974.

The film was produced in 2022 by Neptune Birch in Coos Bay, and the filmmaker has licensed the footage for use by the Organ Grinder Documentary Project. Check out their web site: https://www.neptunebirch.com/
