I had never heard of a “Ghost Light” until I was at the Coronado today. Is this proof that the Coronado is haunted?

I was inside the Coronado Performing Arts Center today working on a super cool video project, we will talk about that another time. The theater was basically empty. It was me, my photographer Tony, and a ghost light.

I had never heard of this before but from what I learned today there are a lot of reasons that theaters keep a “ghost light”, lit.

So here is your “practical” and “logical” idea behind a ghost light. The ghost light is basically a lamp that’s left onstage when all the work is finished in the theater, and everyone’s gone home for the evening. Sounds good to me but there is more, way more.

Chris Smith, the Production Coordinator at the Coronado was telling us about the ghost light and simply said:

It definitely keeps the ghosts happy.


Wait, what? So what’s the deal here? We have all hear the “ghost stories” at the Coronado from over the years. There have been 911 calls about activity in the elevator when no one should be there. Also, there is the story of the haunted piano upstairs in the green room, that will play by itself.

Check out my photo gallery of the Coronado’s ghost light.
