Haldane of the Secret Service screening in Coney Island

Houdini's 1923 film Haldane of the Secret Service will be screened with live piano accompaniment by Liz Magnes at the Coney Island Museum in Coney Island, New York, on Saturday, July 19 at 8:30pm. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in advance here. FREE POPCORN!

Of course, Coney Island was a special place for Harry and Bess Houdini. They met and married in Coney Island and returned each year on their anniversary. A perfect place to screen a Houdini movie.

The Coney Island Museum is located at 1208 Surf Avenue. Click here for more information.


  1. As a long ago projectionist, I wonder if this presentation will be an old analog print of the film, or a digital transfer. At this point in time, all theater houses, whether owned by individuals or large companies like Regal and the Majestic, should have made the technical transfer to digital projectors and screens. Hollywood is no longer manufacturing polyester film to distribute movies.

    1. I expect it will be played from a DVD as most screenings of HH movies.
