    I wonder if there is more of the organ there than just the facade pipes. Also, they did not say where it is located.

      The large theater is Poli's Palace a/k/a Loew's Poli a/ka Loew's Palace Theater in Bridgeport, CT. It was the largest theater in Connecticut with an interior by famous theater architect Thomas Lamb. The smaller theater is the Majestic. They are both in the same building with a hotel between the theaters. Redevelopment of the property has been in the works for years but so far no indication that the financing is there for the project.

      You can see more photos here:

      The theater has a date of 1922. Some information says the organ was installed before the opening and another photo caption says it was 1923. The organ is listed in the OHS database as a Hall Organ Company (West Haven, CT) instrument with no other information available in their listing. If you read the comments in the first link there is a discussion of the Hall organ.
