Three Houdini movies screening at AGO in March

Toronto's AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) will screen three Houdini movies in March as part of their Illusions: The Art of Magic exhibition programing.

First up will be Houdini's 1923 Haldane of the Secret Service on March 4 with live musical accompaniment by Tania Gill. Then on March 6 the gallery will screen The Man From Beyond with live musical accompaniment by Marilyn Lerner. Both films will be introduced by Alicia Fletcher.

Finally, AGO will screen the classic Paramount biopic Houdini (1953) starring Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh three times on March 18 at 2pm, 5pm, and 8pm.

Illusions: The Art of Magic is devoted to the Golden Age of Magic and features more than 55 colorful magic posters from the Allan Slaight Collection of the McCord Museum, Montreal, alongside photographs, films, documents and ephemera. The exhibition begins TODAY and runs through May 19, 2020.

AGO is located at 317 Dundas Street West, Toronto, Ontario.
