Candle Lite™ Unlimited (Legacy Product)

Real flames are very tightly regulated in live entertainment for safety reasons, often requiring special permits. Candles are often called for scripts.

City Theatrical Candle Lite Unlimited flicker candles are an excellent way of simulating live candles on stage. They are remarkably realistic from a few feet away and can be dimmed with standard stage dimmers. They also can be hand held and battery operated and have a built in on-off switch.

A City Theatrical Candle Lite kit is the circuit board, flame tip, and wiring, without the plastic candle shell, and can be used to create custom lanterns, votives, and props.

*Note: Candle Lite LED flicker candles will no longer manufactured. We recommend the incandescent candles as they are more realistic.
