Save Auckland's Wurlitzer Pipe Organ

Save Auckland's Wurlitzer Pipe Organ

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sat 29 Aug ’15, 1:00pm – 2:45pm


The Hollywood Avondale, 20 St Georges Road, Avondale



Ticket Information:

  • General Admission: $20.00

After 32 years of calling the Hollywood Cinema in Avondale "home", we have been instructed to have the Wurlitzer pipe organ removed by September 30 as the building is on the market to be sold.

So in an urgent bid to raise sufficient funds to have this historic pipe organ removed and safely stored pending a new home, we are presenting this second show featuring Jelani Eddington, the USA's leading exponent of this musical art form.

Jelani Eddington will be presenting a short program of music that will showcase just how versatile an instrument the Wurlitzer organ really is! The show will feature the Main theme from "Star Wars" and other popular movie themes, some hits from today and a short silent movie comedy, this demonstrating the original reason for the Wurlitzer Company building these amazing pipe organs.

The "Farewell to the Hollywood" show with Jelani Eddington on Sunday August 30, will feature a different program of music. That show is almost sold out!!

Tickets for the "Fund Raiser" show will be on sale at the door on the day from 12.15pm OR prepaid bookings are available if you'd like to be assured of a seat.

Please note earlier start time of 1pm.

Please support this event and help us to save this much-loved Wurlitzer pipe organ!
