The Olympic operated under the name 'Woodland Theatre' for many years. A Kimball theatre pipe organ (opus 6858) was installed in 1925. Lucille Bossert was organist in 1927.
The organ has a long history of moves and re-installations:

  • In 1931 the instrument was moved to the popular Trianon Ballroom in Seattle. It spent about 15 years there.
  • In 1946, Balcom & Vaughan moved the organ to the Maple Leaf Tavern in Renton, Washington. The console was enlarged to three manuals
  • In April 1957, the organ was purchased by Howard Burr who installed it in his Wallingford residence.
  • In 1997, the organ was purchased by the Everett Theatre Society and is now being installed in the Everett Theatre.
    Records indicate that the original blower for this instrument went to Seattle's Trinity Lutheran Church in 1937.
