Bob Vaughn

Bob does not live in the past. But give him a chance and he will give you a glimpse of it you won't soon forget.

Bob began playing for silent movies in the 1920's. With the coming of talkies, Bob lost his job. Then in 1968 Bob returned to playing the beloved pipe organ at the Avenue theater in San Francisco. Since then he has been busy playing at various theaters and film festivals around the country.

Bob has left us now, he lived to play the organ. One can think back to one Cinesation were we ran METROPLIS at the right speed and proudly presented it with the original score.

It seems that when Germany was split, East and West the score was likewise split. It took years and Bob was justly proud.

He got a well deserved 5 minutes standing ovation!
