State-of-the-art lighting and sound take LBC stage into the future

Photo exhibit celebrates its past

To elevate your experience of live performances here at the LBC, this summer we implemented new state-of-the art lighting and sound systems in the Ruth Finley Person Theater. As part of the “glow up” in the theater, a new photography exhibit just outside the theater highlights special performances over the years.

The new lighting and sound systems are designed specifically for a space like the Ruth Finley Person Theater, the only theater in Sonoma County considered ideal for the variety and scope of live performances offered at the LBC – music, comedy, dance, and speakers.  Updates provide a higher production in line with standards for the different ways we use the theater, which means artists won’t have to bring in as much of their own production equipment to create the effects they want.

Improvements in lighting include direct downlighting for a richer and more versatile theatrical experience. The system is now motorized to increase the dramatics of light patterns and movement, and it also uses LED lights, which increase energy efficiency and reduce heat.

The new sound system allows us to focus the sound in more directions while also improving visibility in the theater. New acoustical panels improve sound diffusion for a richer, more intimate experience.

To commemorate the LBC’s commitment to bringing world-class live performances to the North Bay region, we have installed a photography exhibit in the balcony and vestibules around the theater. The images represent the work of our house photographer Steve Jennings and spans nearly 20 years of performances here at the LBC.

We hope you enjoy these exciting new improvements. Let us know what you think!
