The Empire State Theatre & Musical Instrument Museum presents Alfred Hitchcock's 1927 silent movie, "The Lodger - A Story of the London Fog" with accompanist Andrew Rodgers live in concert on the Mighty Wurlitzer Unit Orchestra.

The Empire State Theatre & Musical Instrument Museum is located in the Harriet May Mills Art & Home Center on the New York State Fairgrounds.  It was established in 1966 as a Nonprofit and Educational Organization, Chartered by the New York State Board of Regents.  The Wurlitzer organ was built in 1925 for the former RKO Keith’s Theatre in downtown Syracuse where it was used principally for silent film accompaniment and musical interludes.  It was saved and permanently reinstalled in the Empire Theatre at the State Fairgrounds as the centerpiece of New York State’s only theatre and musical instrument museum.  The museum has recently celebrated “50 Years Of Music History At The New York State Fair”, with a full year of special programs, historical exhibits and a special anniversary program featuring the president of the American Theatre Organ Society.  More information about the museum is available at or by calling Philip A. Edwards at 315-451-6551.
