Auckland takes to the skies

26th August 1997

Harrahs Sky City complex is the latest adornment to the Auckland skyline in New Zealand, in fact the 364 metre high structure completely dominates the Auckland skyline, and lays claim to being the 6th tallest building in the world. Incorporated within this monster structure is a vast entertainment complex containing an hotel, a massive casino floor, shopping atrium, numerous bars and restaurants and the 700 seat Sky Theatre. The Sky Theatre itself is not the largest in Auckland, but it is the first new theatre to be built in the city since the mid 1980's, and consequently is the most technically up to date venue in this regional capital city.

Lighting Supply Company of Auckland supplied, and installed, the Harrahs Sky Theatre with all of their lighting equipment, and a little bit more, including a complete flying system, all of theatres drapes including a 1600 end fibre optic star cloth, over 400 luminaires and dimmer channels and 6 Clay Paky Super Scan Zooms. For control of the stage lighting system a Flying Pig Systems Wholehog II lighting control console was supplied. Lighting Supply Company also supplied the complete house lighting control and dimming system for the Sky Theatre which consisted of a Colortran Viewpoint control system, along with Colortran dimmers.
