Welcome !

Garden State Theatre Organ Society (GSTOS) was founded in 1973 to preserve the historic tradition of the Theatre Pipe Organ in American music. Based in northern and north-central New Jersey, we restore remaining specimens of the instrument where possible, encourage theatres to preserve them, and showcase them to the public for entertainment.

We are one of the many nationwide chapters of the American Theatre Organ Society and have over 225 members. Members get together for monthly events at theatres, other businesses, and homes.

GSTOS owns five Theatre Pipe Organs and maintains a total of seven. In addition, a number of our members have pipe or electronic theatre organs in their homes.

The Garden State Theatre Organ Society, Inc. is a tax-exempt, non-profit 501(c)(3) Corporation. Contributions to further the Society’s goals are tax deductible.

Members have many interests, for example:

  • Listening to theatre organ music
  • Making music at the organ console
  • Mechanical and electrical aspects of theatre organs
  • American history & nostalgia

GSTOS Featured On The Web

May 14, 2011 -- Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism student, Joy Ma, who is a writer/reporter and has had experience as an  NPR reporter, learned of theatre organ and became curious of this American art form.  She contacted us and interviewed members at the Rainbow Room organ installation at Rahway Senior Citizens Center and again at the Robert Morton pipe organ installation at Landmark Loew's Jersey theatre.  After hours of recording and interviewing in New York and New Jersey, Joy Ma compiled a short radio feature for Columbia Radio (at Columbia University).  She included samples of the organs and featured four different speakers.  Although she is a musician, it is most interesting to hear the impressions of a non-organist and her perceptions of the unit orchestra.
