The Rialto Theatre originally had a four-manual American Master organ installed in 1916 for a cost of $25,000. According to the Junchen Encyclopedia, the instrument featured both a four manual console and a two-manual grand piano console, both playable simultaneously and with independent registrations. The instrument had two blowers. Current status is unknown.
