The emotional undertones of the movie will be provided by the instrument created just for this purpose, the theatre pipe organ. The Garden State Theatre Organ Society installed and maintains its Wurlitzer organ in the Brook Theater. GSTOS is proud to present Bernie Anderson as the organist for this event.
