The Bluegrass chapter 3/18 Wurlitzer is in the process of being restored and rebuilt, and the Allen MDS Theatre-III is there temporarily at the theater until the Wurlitzer is finished and reinstalled. It is played every Friday night for 30 minutes prior to the 7:00 pm movie by theatre organ historian and Theatre Organ Magazine contributor Dr. John W. Landon. It is also played during the Summer Classic Movie Series to large crowds by Dr. Landon 30 minutes before the Wednesday noon matinee, and by others 30 minutes before the movie at 7:30 pm on Wednesday evenings from mid-May through the first week in September. There are also special programs once or twice per year that include silent film accompaniment.
