A Grass Valley electrical contractor donated $700 in labor to install new lights behind the Del Oro Theatre.

Dan Felix, owner of Felix Electric on Idaho-Maryland Road, said he offered to donate the $700 in labor if the theater would pay for the fixtures.

Felix said he has four daughters who go to the movies at the theater, and he felt the lighting would deter problems.

Felix donated labor to install five high-pressure sodium lights. Three of the lights were installed two weeks ago, and the remaining two installed Wednesday.

Kate Smith, assistant manager of the theater, said Felix is “pretty much donating to the community.”
