Is this place still running?
There was a player piano at Ike's Chicken Shack in rural Browns Valley, MN. It was long broken, but they used to show old Laurel and Hardy shorts in the "movie theater" there, along with a "zoo" featuring 2 parrots, a goat, and a rheumatic grizzly bear. Sadly, the health department found too much arsenic in the drinking water, and it has since been torn to the ground.
God, I'm old.
OH! They also had an awesome arcade with ancient pinball machines (the analog ones that only went to 999) and an original copy of "Death Race"!

I loved this for some reason.

QRS, the last remaining producers of paper player-piano rolls ceased operations on paper rolls on Dec. 31, 2008:

Awesome. I love that some of the machinery parts are literally lengths of string.
