Royalty Bowness Wurlitzer organThe Royalty Cinema in Bowness is hosting a special Christmas concert featuring their 1927 Wurlitzer organ played by Paul Gregson, Mark Latimer and Declan Poole, with international tenor Ian Honeyman. The 1930 Laurel and Hardy short 'Below Zero' will also be screened.

A team of volunteers from The Furness Theatre Organ Project recently completed a five year programme of restoration of the 1927 Wurlitzer, the only one of its kind in a working cinema in Europe.

The organ is a 2 manual instrument of 7 ranks which was originally installed in a theatre in Cleveland, Ohio before arriving in England in 1934, where it was installed in the Rex Cinema in East London. The Wurlitzer remained there until the early 1970s when it was put into storage.

12:30pm to 2:30pm (approx.)  |  Tickets £6 available on the door
