When San Francisco State University asked SMA
to assist them in breathing new life to an aging
historic and classic theatre, SMA responded with
a concept of innovation which included replacing
the entire existing lighting systems with new energy
effecient LED’s. DMX controlled sconces and house
lights were installed transforming the space into a
color rich theatre environment.
We worked closely with the theatre facilities and
the university for material selections and lighting
The lighting systems were realised with linear wall
wash lighting with a full range of optical colors to
create various ambiance to suit the performances
at the theatre.
Both the theatre and lobby were renovated with
new paint and carpet.
