from NYCAGO website:
Wurlitzer's Opus 1975 for RKO Keith's Theatre was a "Style 250" that had a factory date of October 20, 1928. In actuality, the organ was a "Style 250 Special" because it had an additional 8' Saxophone, plus the additional Tibia Clausa unification of 2 2/3' plus 2' on the Great. The organ's 15 ranks of pipes were installed in two chambers, one on each side of the proscenium, which were fronted by elaborate screens that were covered with spiral columns, niches, volutes, and other baroque ornament. A 10 H.P. Spencer blower provided 15" pressure to the entire organ.

In 1968, the organ was donated to the College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout (Branson), Missouri, where it was installed intact in Jones Auditorium. The organ was playable until about 2008, when a fire in the stagehouse resulted in water damage to the chamber containing the organ's relay. Plans to repair the organ are indefinite.
