††††† The Wurlitzer Organ Trust of Auckland (WOTA) is a registered not-for-profit charitable organisation charged with the care and preservation of the now 3-manual 16-rank Wurlitzer pipe organ, formerly the 2/8 Model F Wurlitzer installed in the Regent Theatre in Queen St Auckland.The organ was housed at the Hollywood Cinema in Avondale where it had been entertaining Auckland for over 32 years. In August 2015, the Hollywood Cinema was sold and the Trust requested to remove the organ by end of September.The Wurlitzer is now in storage pending installation in its new home at the Playhouse Theatre, Glen Eden Auckland.††††††††

The Trustís goal is to keep this unique form of musical entertainment alive by presenting regular musical events and shows. These feature not just the organ as a solo instrument, but also together with other artists, musical mediums, and the accompaniment of silent movies - the original purpose behind the creation of theatre pipe organs.

 

WOTA is registered with the NZ Charities Commission Ė No. CC10966.
