Moller Organ

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

Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases in our area and across the state, the City of Americus buildings are currently closed to the public. The Rylander Theatre is included in this closure as well as included in the restrictions put forth under 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!
