ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A historic theater is preparing to show off its rare organ.

A year after it was damaged by lightning, the 1928 Moller organ at the Rylander Theatre in Americus is fully repaired.

An organist from Atlanta will play it during a special showing of the silent movie classic "Phantom of the Opera."

"People just know this isn't something you get to do everyday. This isn't like going to see a scary movie at the Carmike, this is actually an experience more than just seeing a movie," said Rylander Theatre Managing Director Heather Stanely.

Tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for students.

The one time only showcase will be Friday, October 28th at 8 o'clock.
