Million Dollar Theater celebrates The Magic of Tony Curtis

A very special screening of the 1953 classic HOUDINI was held at the historic Million Dollar Theater in downtown Los Angeles yesterday. Mr. Curtis was on hand for the day-long celebration, THE MAGIC OF TONY CURTIS, a part of the L.A. Historic Theatre Foundation’s Jules Verne Festival.

Before the screening escape artist Curtis Lovell performed a water cube escape for the packed crowd. Having escaped, Lovell was congratulated by Mr. Curtis himself, who came on stage to a standing ovation.

HOUDINI was a treat to watch with a live audience (including many children) who laughed at the humor and applauded each feat of magic.
