Lights for Art Deco movie theater : LUSENET : Art Deco Society of Washington : One Thread

I am one of a number of owners of a 1938 Art Deco movie palace. The theater was built for the Schine Movie chain in central New York. John Eberson designed this building; it is a one-of-a-kind outerspace atmosphere house and seats about 2000. The theater is still in it's original condition, but badly damaged due to a bad roof that has now been replaced. Are there any experts that can help us to copy some of our missing light fixtures or someone with photos of similar theaters? I would be glad to talk to anyone who is interested or who wants to help us in our project.

One of the best places to find "new" old lights is Rejuvenation Lamp & Fixture Company in Portland, Oregon. They carry a great line of Deco fixtures which they call their "modern American" line. Check out their web page at

I'd watch e-bay for period deco lighting. The original is always better!
