The Heilig Theatre had a 2/5 Kimball installed in 1925. Current status is unknown except for a pair of swell shade frames that made their way to Tom Hobbs in Seattle. They were later acquired by Russ Evans and donated to the Pipe Organ Foundation who plans to use them for an installation at the Mercer Island Presbyterian Church.
