Met Lights

Here is a photo of one of the Austrian crystal chandeliers inside the Metropolitan Opera at Lincoln Center. Right before each performance the chandeliers slowly rise up to the top of the ceiling, and that's always one of my favorite moments. There's a New York Times article here about the refurbishment of the chandeliers in 2008.

gorgeous shot! You make me want to see this in person.
I know I saw the chandeliers go up in a movie once. I think it may have been "Moonstruck".
