The Mission of BTOS’s  Non-profit Corporation is to preserve, maintain and present  the (publically owned) Theatre Organs in Broome County.  We accomplish this through YOUR Donations and Attendance support !  We need to raise   $250,000 over the next  five years to accomplish the repairs and updating of the 1922 Robert-Morton “Unit Orchestra”  and  close to an additional amount to help re-build  the Link III/19 organ at the  Roberson Museum and Science Center.
