Vaults Live

  • Client Cine Electric
  • Location Dublin, Ireland


Based on characters from Irish history, Vaults Live in Dublin offers an immersive experience that brings to life six amazing stories, using stunning 360° sets, lavish costumes and brilliantly devised special effects.

One of these stories centres around a Cromwellian dungeon and Cine Electric who were leading the lighting on the project were on the hunt for a way to realistically mimic candlelight that was safe, stable and efficient.


Project Manager David McKeown of Cine Electric was present at the ArcLamp Flicker’s launch at PLASA 2017 and during a chat about the application of GDS technologies, was introduced to the product.

Suitably impressed, David ordered some demonstration kit and took it back to the designers at Vaults Live, who were very happy with the effect ArcLamp Flicker gave when placed within custom-made fixtures in the space. In addition to the use of ArcLamp fixtures as the main source of light in the dungeon, a number of GDS ArcSystem MR16 fixtures were also used to light walkways at Vaults Live.

The use of ArcLamp Flicker enhanced the high production values of Vaults Live, and helped to ensure that all who visited received a truly realistic and unforgettable insight into Irish culture.



David McKeown, Project Manager at Cine Electric adds, “Both designer and client are very happy with the outcome at Vaults Live and we are pleased to have brought ArcLamp Flicker to their attention. The lamps succeed in delivering precisely what is required for this outstanding attraction. The visitor experience at Vaults Live is second to none and we’re proud to have played a part in helping to create such an authentic and atmospheric setting.”
