Builder: Bennett Organ Co., Op. 1002, 1928.
Manuals: 2
Ranks: Unknown
Action: Electro-pneumatic

Notes: The 1914-1915 edition of "The American Motion Picture Directory" lists a Grand Theatre at 214 1st Street in Montevideo, MN. It may be the building that now houses Hollywood on Main. The directory also lists a Montevideo Opera House (with no address).

A trade journal from 1914 noted an expansion underway at a "Star Theatre" in Montevideo, and a construction journal notes a new theater being built there for a Mr. Starbeck. Either of those might have become the "Grand." In 1919, there is a reference to a "Monte Theatre," and in 1923 to a "State Theatre." Some history is still missing of Montevideo’s theater history.
