After the intermission title fades, close the scrim and wait
five seconds before bringing up the house lights. Part I ends on a
highly spiritual and emotional scene, and suddenly flooding the
theatre with light would be most unwelcome to the audience.|
After three minutes of intermission music played on the
house phonograph, house lights should be dimmed and scrim opened.
The scrim should be full-open and house lights down before the
image appears on the screen at the start of the second part.
The end title of "THE TEN COMMANDMENTS" carries a nine-word
message, and the scrim should not be closed until this title has
completely faded out. After the scrim is closed, wait five seconds
before opening the house lights.
