Ok, so I've been thinking about this for a while. Right now, I'm about to go to college for tech theatre/lighting design. However, I have always had an interest in history. This is a major part of the reason I love old theatres and especially old lighting fixtures. I firmly believe that fixtures are only "crap" when you don't maintain them and have no use for them. Old fixtures can fill some pretty unique needs at times. Its the old addage, "one mands junk is another mans treasure". I like to know the past and learn from it. It's great to learn the old tricks as well as what doesn't work. I was on an old circa-1920's stage around here that still had its complete and original lighting setup. 10" scoop-style striplights never looked so good. The recent old lighting threads got me thinking. What if someone was to found a theatre history museum, or a lighting museum, or an illumination museum. Of course, you would have to try and target it to bring in an audience. So, what if it was combined with a working theatre, and this theatre did shows in the styles of the different periods. Is there something like this already? Maybe not really that big, or effective, but something in the works. Maybe some theatre has a "basement museum" already. Maybe there are others out there who just dont have the time or money to do such a thing, or don't believe they could find support. So, what do you think? Is there a chance that such a thing could be pulled off.
