Green theater initiative

There’s a push now for theaters on Broadway to become greener with the Green Theater Initiative.

Sure, theaters were getting greener on their own, thanks to the efforts of some progressive proprietors and forward thinking designers. But now there’s an entire initiative looking to sweep Broadway with unifying green policies. It’s the Green Theatre Initiative, and it just launched its comprehensive website last week. So what’s its impact?

The Green Theater Movement
The initiative’s aim is both to inspire theaters around the world to adopt more environmentally friendly policies, and to lessen their impact and increase sustainability. It will also offer a network of support, via the website’s forums and a bi-weekly newsletter to better create a community of green minded participants.

Could its success lead to these practices carrying over to cinemas? Read more at Tree Hugger.

Almost all lights in the grand auditorium and lobbies of the Tuschinski theater here have been replaced with LEDs. This was not only an economical issue, but also because of health & labor regulations. The lights high up on the ceilings and other hard to reach places should be replaced as least as possible! I haven’t noticed any difference between the old lights and the new ones. So I’d say: go LED!
