The organ that was in the Ritz, Chatham is now at the Buttermarket, Shrewsbury and the one previously in the Gaumont at Gillingham I think is in New Zealand.  I can`t remember what happened to the organ from the Gaumont/ Majestic, Rochester and as far as I know there wasn`t one in the Regent, Chatham due to the `pit` flooding (as the Odeon in Sittingbourne). I`m relying on memory and could be wrong. Somewhere on the Forum there`s an answer to your question, Colin, but I can`t find it at the moment. I`m sure Barrowboy will correct me if I`m wrong and give a more comprehensive answer.

This Wurlitzer I saw and heard in a museum in Thursford, Norfolk.
It came from a cinema in Leeds.   Anyone know what may have happenend to ones  that used to be in cinemas and theatres in Kent?
