Abracadabra! Magical Movies

Thursday, May 1 – Thursday, May 8, 2014

In honor of the American Repertory Theater’s new production of The Tempest, featuring magic designed by the legendary Teller, the Brattle is pleased to present this compilation of strange and wondrous films featuring practical stage magic. We kick off with the inimitable Teller and his partner Penn Gillette for a 25th anniversary screening of PENN & TELLER GET KILLED and spiral out from there hitting classic horror (THE MAD MAGICIAN), world cinema (Bergman’s THE MAGICIAN), exploitation (THE WIZARD OF GORE), warped kids’ films (SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES) and more! Please join us for this celebration of onscreen prestidigitation.
