Welcome to the Magic Lantern Show!  You are in for one of the most enjoyable and amazing shows you've ever seen! Dating from the 1800's, the Magic Lantern Show combines Music, Comedy, Drama, Special Effects and a live performer with an antique Magic Lantern.  Hand painted glass slides are enhanced by the "Showman's" performance as he narrates and weaves stories with the stunning original images from the 1800's.

The show is a modern take on a long-forgotten art form.  Before there were movies, the Magic Lantern dominated the entertainment landscape with the fascinating images, and even animations.  Now you can relive this golden age at the only permanent theater of its kind in the world!
