Wurlitzer organs are forever associated with the heyday of silent films but now a days they are rare.

But in Bowness in Windermere, after a five year fund raising and restoration project, a fully functioning Wurlitzer has been unveiled at the town's Royalty Cinema.

The large pipe organ was built in 1927 for a theatre in Cleveland Ohio and shipped to London in the thirties where it fell into disrepair.

After years of careful restoration it's now back in a setting where it belongs.

Andy Burn sent this report for ITV Border.
