The Raymond Theatre will host the talents of one of the better known Wurlitzer organ players in the Northwest in a special event Sunday, May 24, at 2 p.m. Jeff Fox of Cathlamet will accompany the silent film, The General, a historical comedy about the Civil War starring Buster Keaton.
Jeff's skill culminates from 30 years of playing theater organs, and as a regular church organist. He comes by his love for historic theaters naturally; his uncle Marvin was theater manager for the Coliseum Theater in Seattle as well as the Music Hall, Orpheum, Embassy and Paramount.
While the event is a swan song for Fox's career in the Northwest, it's an encore for the historic organ that dates back to 1928. The doors open at 1:15 pm and beer and wine will be served as well as popcorn.
