Moller Organ

The 1928 restored Moller theater pipe organ. It is one of only two theater pipe organs in Georgia theaters.

As we prepare to present live performances again in the coming months, we are actively looking for VOLUNTEERS and PRODUCTION SUPPORT PERSONNEL. Click HERE if you're interested in helping!

Due to COVID-19, the Rylander Theatre is closed and under restrictions put forth by the Governor's Executive Orders. We are in the offices daily caring for our building and working diligently to reschedule the shows booked for early 2021. 
We encourage visitors to scan the QR code posted on our front doors to take a virtual tour of our beautiful and historic theatre. We are hopeful that we will open our doors again very soon and celebrate our 100th birthday with our community and supportive patrons!
