The Heights Theatre in Columbia Heights, Minnesota is a Land-O-Lakes ATOS project.

The installation is being done by the Chapter with advise from Terry Kleven. Right now the organ is 4 manuals and 13 ranks, when it is finished it will be 32 ranks.

The current rank list:

Violin & Celeste - Kimball
Gamba & Celeste - Moller
Vox Humana - Wurlitzer

Some of the futue additions include:

Murray Harris Tibia
Moller Kinura from the legendary George Wright Pasadena Organ
Kimball English Horn
Kimball Harmonic Flute from the Roxy Theatre, New York
Wurlitzer Brass Saxophone Wurlitzer

One odd fact about the organ - none of the Wurlitzer chests were ever intalled in a theatre.

The organ is played on weekends before the movies. It is quite popular with the patrons of the theatre.
