The Temple Theater's Original Robert Morton pipe organ was the center of attention Sunday during a special concert celebrating its history and relevance in the modern entertainment world.
The Temple Theater organ has been in the Temple Theater since 1927. In the last 82 years entertainment has changed dramatically, but in its day this organ was the center of attention for Meridianites looking to have a fun night out on the town.
"It is one of just a handful of uniquely American musical inventions. Its reason for being was to provide music for silent films," said Ken Double, President American Theater Organ Society.
The group Sunday held a concert to show of the instrument and encourage potential members to join the group.
