Lights Up in Filmhouse 1

We have now replaced the old house lighting system in Cinema One with brand new eco-friendly LED lighting in the main ceiling.  Where we are now state of the art, we had been state of the Ark, with ten kilowatts of old fashioned filament lamps burning away.  Now, after the initial purchase cost we are looking at using only three per cent of our previous energy and replacement needs.  This means for one thing the difference between £4,400 per annum and only £132 per annum, a huge saving not only of hard cash but of scarce resources. It has taken quite a long time to source and design fittings which would afford the proper coverage, preferred colour temperature (some LED lights can be a bit cold) and be able to dim evenly whilst fitting in with the period look of our barrel-vaulted ceiling.  

So finally we have done it and are very happy that they not only look good and work well but that we have done our bit for the environment in the process.
