The Academy of Magical Arts is proud to present “The Houdini Séance” - Hollywood’s most famous and immersive theater experience, a Milt Larsen original, one-of-a-kind evening in the astonishing Houdini séance room at the Magic Castle®. We’ve prepared a sensational dining experience for you and your guests, and we’ve invited a world-class medium to sit at the table and conduct a special séance, an attempt to contact the great magician, Harry Houdini, who died on Halloween in 1926. You’ll witness dazzling artifacts from his amazing career; hear the story of his battles with fraud mediums, and enjoy an evening of magical mysteries with weird surprises that you’ll never forget.
Your Séance dinner experience is held in our legendary Houdini Chamber, adjacent to our dining room. Recommended check-in time is between 6:00-6:15pm. The experience begins with a multi-course dinner, lasting approximately an hour-and-a-half. After dinner, you will briefly leave the chamber to allow staff to clean and prepare the room. You will then be guided through an hour-long journey to the beyond attempting to summon the spirit of Harry Houdini. After your experience, we encourage your party to enjoy world-class magic and explore the club house.
