Also at auction is a 10-person Houdini Seance dinning experience at the Magic Castle. Remember, the traditional Houdini Seance is going away in December, so this would be the time to grab one!

Tickets to the event include access to the museum and their Houdini Terror on the Magic Isle exhibition. The exhibition is devoted to Houdini's 1920 movie Terror Island, which was filmed on Catalina, and runs through October 7.



  1. That pinball machine would look great in your pad John.

    1. Haha. No room for it in my place, I'm afraid, but it's a cool game and a blast to play! The museum has it setup so you can play for free.
