The old, flush-mounted AC-only Prescolite exit signs from the 1970s that were mostly replaced. Some still remain, but most are either disconnected or covered by the new signs.

Hmm the building has a mix of green and red exit signs? Not sure on your area but in a lot of places that's not allowed. Some states even mandate a certain color. RI requires red exit signs unless there are special circumstances OK'ed by the inspector.

To resist is to piss in the wind, anyone who does will end up smelling.

Finding red and green together in a building isn't horribly uncommon in Minnesota. Both red and green are allowed, but in general red sees more use and some local municipalities require a certain color. In this specific case, the university campus that this auditorium is located on is super strict on the color and contrast of the exit signs. Specifically, that all newly installed exit signs (spot-replacement, new construction, or other) have to have green lettering on a contrasting white or glass background. So, in other words, local codes or preferences can sometimes overrule Minnesota's "hands-off" exit sign color policy, and results in a mix of colors, and because of grandfather clauses the older units don't have to be replaced unless they're defective. It can also just be based on availability or personal preference of whatever company is responsible for the installation. In most cases, the situation is similar to this one where the exit signs of one color are a lot older than the exit signs that are the other color, and that can usually be attributed to a switch in contracts or ownership over who maintains the exit signs. I have seen a few weird new installations that use a mixture of green and red, but usually those are multi-tenant buildings like malls that have individual electrical contracts for each store. So yea, Minnesota seems fine with using both colors in the same building.

I've always liked green exit signs as a kid since green is my favorite color. But the only place I notice them around here is at Ross. Plus theirs have a silver face which looks nice with the green. I don't know what brand they are though.

Hmm interesting. I personally like the green better. They seem more visible imo. One place we use green at work is medical marijuana grows. The plants can't be exposed to any color but green during certain cycles.

I don't think I've seen a green text exit sign here in Canada. The older text ones all had red text. Newer exit signs use the ISO running man pictogram and are green and white. I first started seeing the running man signs installed in 2011 but some buildings used the older red EXIT signs until 2015. The older red EXIT signs are grandfathered so most older buildings still have them. Seeing the red EXIT and green running man signs in the same building is quite common here as newly renovated areas use the running man signs.
