Eye-Comfort Lighting for Eureka's New Theatre
Eureka Reporter, 29 May 1914, page 4
In the matter of lighting it will be equal to anything in the state, the new indirect system to be installed.
The lighting fixtures four in number are bronze [bo vis?] about three feet in diameter, to be suspended from the ceiling by heavy chains. Each fixture contains several lights of 150 watts each, and by means of these fixture the light is thrown to the ceiling and then reflected to all parts of the house, giving a pleasing and restful effect that can be obtained in no other manner. From these fixtures it is possible to get a brilliant lighting and also a dim lighting, the latter being used while the motion picture machines are in use, enabling patrons to readily locate seats without the assistance of an usher and at the same time equalizing the bright light from the motion picture screen, thus taking away the glare and flicker that is sometimes noticeable.
The Star Theatre will be the first house outside of the two largest cities of the state to adopt the new indirect system of lighting.
