Welcome to the American Theatre Organ Society. If you are one of our thousands of members, welcome back and enjoy the new site, with more information, more music and more fun. If you are new, we hope you will take some time to discover one of the music world's unique gems - the Mighty Theatre Organ. It's been more than 100 years since Wurlitzer created its first theatre organ, and Barton, Robert-Morton, Kimball, and dozens of other companies created thousands of instruments, made to accompany silent films, and fill majestic movie palaces with glorious music. ATOS is proud to work with more than 70 local chapters across the U. S. and around the world, promoting the instrument, presenting concerts and silent films, developing young artists and technicians, providing scholarships, and most of all, having a lot of fun in the world of music.

So take a moment. Find an instrument near you. Listen to some wonderful music. Be introduced to an artist; or explore our art form's fascinating history. We are delighted you found us. If not a member, we hope you will join us. Everything you need to do so is right here. Be prepared for what we like to call a musical "WOW!" moment. Get set for the Mighty Theatre Organ and ATOS. Welcome!
