These guys have been building movie lights for 80 years! They represent the gold standard in production lighting equipment and have helped many a cinematographer to make a superstar shine. Their headquarters are home to the aptly named “Superstore” and a “Lighting Showroom” as well. I’d seen the place before, yet I never tried to go inside. I’d wrongly believed that it was for industry folks only.

When I did venture within I discovered a veritable wonderland for the photographically inclined. The superstore is just humongous. Next door, the showroom is full of a rich history of the company and some beautiful lights on display. The person I spoke with was friendly and knowledgeable. Hooray for Hollywood!
