The Majestic Cinema in Cradley Heath is still standing after being used for a while as a Bingo Hall after the demise of the Cinema, it is now being used as a warehouse in which to store cycle parts.
The organ is still intact, the console is hidden under the stage, the original waterpowered lift still works!! The relays and pipework are in chambers on the right of what was the auditorium, luckily the pipework is heated but the whole organ is unplayable at this time.
Several approaches have been made to the owners in an attempt to rescue this instrument, but they want ridiculous money for the organ, I dont really feel they realise the costs involved after the organ has been removed from its present sad home.


this  organ, as far as i know, has bn sold recently.

That is good news, I dread to think how much was paid for it.
