Harnessing unique 19th century entertainment mechanics that harken back to a time before Netflix on smartphones and blockbusters on IMAX screens, magic lantern shows recreate stories that easily enthrall audiences from start to finish. Refresh your idea of conventional entertainment with this offer at Plain & Fancy's Theatre, and enjoy admission for 2 for $16 to “A Christmas Journey” a Christmas magic lantern show (a $33.90 value).
If you think you’ve experienced all the entertainment modern society has to offer, it’s time to take a step back in time to a magic lantern show. Using a Victorian-era triple lantern, a raucously entertaining showman steers the story and embodies a bevy of characters, bringing them to life through voice and antique hand-painted art on glass as he marries technique with music, sing-alongs and sound effects for a 360° audience experience seldom forgotten.
In “A Christmas Journey”, step back in time and become part of a Victorian family’s traditional Christmas Eve celebration. The family is very excited and you will be, too, as Grandpa tells fabulous Christmas stories with the help of the amazing Magic Lantern. The surprises and joys of the season are brought to visual delight with this collaboration between the Amish Experience and the American Magic Lantern Theater.
