Center for Sac History presents short film About iconic signs at arena

Today, the Center for Sacramento History has released a five-minute film titled Relighting the Past: Neon Signs Brighten the Golden 1 Center, which documents the process of preparing six historic neon signs for installation at the Golden 1 Center. Developed by producer Chris Lango, the short film features footage of and interviews about the sign’s rehabilitation process from storage to installation. The six iconic signs, all from the Center for Sacramento History’s prized collection, include the following: Coronet Portraits, Franke’s Drugs, Newbert Hardware, Shakey’s Pizza, Sleeper Stamp and Stationery, and Tower Records.


“It's been fascinating to document the process of bringing these incredible artifacts from the Center for Sacramento History back to life,” said Chris Lango. “This collaboration between the Center and the Kings is unique because they’ve created an eye-catching public display of local history unlike any other in the United States.”  The film is narrated by Lango and video services were provided by Steve Davis Productions. Lango has previously partnered with the Center on documentary projects including last springs’ Replacing the Past: Sacramento's Redevelopment History, which aired on KVIE.

The Relighting the Past film is available on the Center’s website at www.centerforsacramentohistory.org/exhibits/current-exhibits/neon-signs.  The installation of the neon signs in the new area is a joint project between the Center for Sacramento History, the Sacramento Kings and Pacific Neon Company.
