Lighthouse Immersive and renowned illusionist Jamie Allan invite you into a world of intrigue, mystery, and wonder, with the World Premiere of Allan’s ILLUSIONARIUM. A labyrinth of magical rooms transporting audiences to different eras in time, ILLUSIONARIUM takes you on an immersive journey through the evolution of magic as the world’s most famous illusionists share their deepest secrets.
Using 3D projections, life-like holograms and live magicians, ILLUSIONARIUM offers the chance to experience some of the greatest, grand-scale illusions in the world within a physically distanced setting. The first-of-its-kind installation will occupy the third gallery space in the historic Toronto Star printing presses.
Conceived by British high-tech magician Jamie Allen (iMagician), this experiential exhibit blends Jamie’s encyclopedic knowledge of the history of magic with state-of-the-art technology, bringing the illusions of the past into the 21st century. Comprised of a series of a series of four magical rooms, each representing a different era in starting with the 17th century, visitors are guided through ever-evolving styles of magic spanning hundreds of years.
Upon entering ILLUSIONARIUM, visitors are welcomed by renowned illusionists, starting with Harry Houdini and Robert Houdin. Giving audiences a peek behind the curtain, these famous magicians share the essence and fundamentals of magic. The sequence of rooms – PALAIS ROYALE, THE EGYTPTIAN HALL, ON-AIR STUDIOS, and EVO-LUSION HALL – connects via passageways displaying magic artwork and historical artifacts evocative of the time and place in history each room portrays – fully immersing you in the culture and soul of the era.
