Reopened as a live performance venue in 1976 through the efforts of local organist, teacher and impresario John Harms, after whom it was renamed. Underwent two major renovation projects in the 1990s. Briefly closed in 2003. Reopened and renamed in 2004 by BergenPAC, a community group led by Frank Huttle III. (4/14/02)
