Cinema Organ Society
|Purpose||To promote high standards of theatre organ performance, presentation and technical skill.|
The Cinema Organ Society (COS) was founded in 1952 by Hubert Selby and Tony Moss for those interested in organ music as entertainment. The aim of the society is to preserve and promote the presentation of these wonderful instruments for the enjoyment of existing and future generations.
The COS is organised into a number of districts around the UK, each with its own 'adopted' cinema organ.
