Fox Theatre, Atlanta, Georgia
Photo by Wendy Darling

Shots of the “sky” and palace ramparts of the theater, taken from the balcony. The stars actually twinkle and the clouds (shown in one picture) move across, thanks to a special light with a rotating disc on it. At one time the sky also did “sunrise” and “sunset” effects. Those ramparts, BTW, are walkable, and we saw staff up on them. As for those huge chandeliers hanging from the proscenium, a cherry picker is using for replacing bulbs and maintenance.
