Harry Houdini Double-Bill: The Man From Beyond & Terror Island, Plus Magic & Giveaways
Egyptian Theatre (Hollywood, CA)
Many people don’t know that the famous magician Harry Houdini starred in and directed a number of films in the early ’20s. Two of his best — The Man From Beyond and Terror Island — will be screened at the historic Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. In addition to the double feature, there’ll be a display of rare Houdini photographs, a prize drawing, and a live performance by magician Mark Paskell, who will attempt to escape from a regulation straitjacket. Houdini’s films are filled with outrageous plots, unusual characters, and the daring feats of the master showman.
