Looks like Kino Flathead 80's in the ceiling...

Though it's possible that it is some other manufacturer's version of it.

Thanks David! I'm guessing these fixtures are very common for fluorescent building interiors?

They are a bit heavy to rig to a ceiling; the key grip must have found some support beams hidden inside the drop ceiling to clamp and safety chain onto. Normally you'd use the lighter 4' 4-bank Kino but even that is pushing things weight-wise if your only mounting option is clipping it to the drop ceiling frame with clips; ideally you'd still find some internal support to rig off of, or use a piece of wood with a baby spud plate mounted in the center and then rest the wood across the top of the drop ceiling, etc.

The Flathead 80 is in a metal box but the 4' 4-bank Kino has a plastic-coated cardboard-type backing that keeps it lightweight.
