LINK: Eerie remains of Burnley theater where Houdini performed

This article from the UK's Daily Mail shows the current condition of the Empire Theater in Burnley where Houdini performed in December 1902. While many old theaters claims to have had Houdini on their stages, this one actually did!

Details of Houdini's Burnley appearance can be found in Derek Tait's Houdini The British Tours. An updated edition of that book is due out on July 30, 2017.

  1. The Burnley Empire Theatre Trust has commissioned a feasibility study to see if this wonderful old theatre can be restored as a community theatre for the future. It would be fantastic if this historic theatre could be reopened.
