Thanks. I’ll add a page for the Pastime then.

A list of organs produced by the Estey company says that their opus 1531, built in 1917, was originally installed in the Osran Amusement Company’s Dream Theatre in Bremerton, but was eventually moved to Fremont Baptist Church in Seattle. Puget Sound Theatre Organ Society has a page for it, but the only information about the theater itself is that the organ was installed in 1917 and sold to the church for $2,500 in 1924. The house was most likely closed and dismantled that year. The Osran company would not have let the valuable organ sit idle for long.

The Osran Amusement Company, operating the Rialto, Dream, and Rex theaters in Bremerton was mentioned in the July 12, 1919 issue of Motion Picture News.
