A few months ago a number of spare organ pipes that were stored in a local Meridian warehouse were stolen.  These vintage pipes were destined for installation in the magnificent Robert Morton Theatre Organ that patrons have come to love and enjoy before many performances and the occasional silent movie.  The “Mighty Morton” pipe chambers can accommodate many more pipes or “voices” that would dramatically enhance the sound capability presently available.  Many of these stolen pipes had been donated to the Temple Theatre by a Texas Foundation  specifically for this project. 

Please show your love and support for the historic Temple Theatre and the Mighty Morton Theatre Organ by donating to the GoFundMe campaign.  Please follow this link to view the GoFundMe video:
