From: Thomas Klose, Feb. 2000

The instrument (opus no. 1254, style E) was shipped January 21, 1926 to the Skandia Theater in Stockholm.

When the theatre was refurbished in the mid 1960's the organ was dismantled and partially stored in the Town Hall and in the headquarters of the Tobacco Monopole.

Meanwhile too many parts of the organ suffered from long term storage so that it can hardly be expected to see this instrument being installed again.

My Danish contact received information on this instrument through the Swedish Film Industry in Stockholm. They also reported they had in mind to reconstruct the Skandia Theater to its original condition of 1923 and were looking out for another Wurlitzer organ... when I got this info nearly ten years ago and further news was not forwarded since.
