Cinema light fixture

Cinema light fixture

Scanned image from a book of an art deco light fixture from my local cinema. These were lit with either white fluorescent or neon tubes and would dim down to off at the start of a show. Not sure if any of these were salvaged before demolition in 1981. Kings Theatre, Ashfield NSW.

my guess is it was 4x40 and one 5 ft tube (forget the watts of a 5 footer!) on some kind of dimmer capable ballast

Looking at the picture again it looks like a tube is out.
5ft T12 were 65/80w.

Oh my word that is such a beautiful fluoresant classy fixture hopefully it should have been salvaged because someone must have realised how beautiful this fixture was- it can make use in a classy hotel lobby or any art deco themed place

What reminds me that, in a concert venue in Reading, called The Hexagon has got white neon/CCFL tubes that are overhead the stage on the slope of the ceiling or wall, and they dim when the concert/play starts and you perform there under the hot bright halogen floodlights

I will give LEDisease a taste of my shoe

@Flurofan96: I think there were 6 of these fittings. The local Historical Society might know if any were salvaged.
I forgot to mention the cinema's name in the description which I have now corrected.

We have a chain of cinemas here called Reading

Hi Blake, yes I've been to the Cremorne Orpheum. Great restoration considering they had to work around an arcade of shops that had been built in the former stalls seating area of the theatre.
