The Coconut Creek Seminole Casino in Florida presents Magic Month with a free comprehensive Houdini exhibit on loan from The Houdini Museum in Scranton, PA. Coconut Creek, FA, February 14, 2011 (PressReleasePoint) -- February is Magic Month at the Coconut Creek Casino in Coconut Creek Florida. The casino's "Stars of Magic" event features a comprehensive Houdini exhibit as part of their month long celebration of magic. The exhibit is from the Houdini Museum, in Scranton, PA, the only building in the world completely devoted to the legendary Houdini. For over 20 years the Houdini Museum has presented a Houdini Museum Tour and Magic Show in Scranton, PA to the general public. Now they are taking parts of it on the road. The free museum exhibit at the casino, under the direction of well known magicians, Houdini experts and magic consultants, Dorothy Dietrich and John Bravo (aka Dick Brookz), displays over 150 original Houdini artifacts, pictures, books and props about the legendary magician dating from 1883 to the present. There are newspaper stories, autographed books, original photographs, handcuffs, magazines, advertisements, patent papers, a printing block, keys and locks, film clips, a Houdini vest, and a Houdini Bobble Head doll on exhibit. The exhibit is in the three sections, a video tower and two enclosed see through rooms. One of the rooms has a large pillory stock escape invented by Houdini as well as a huge milk can used for escapes. The exhibit is the largest traveling display ever put together about the life of the legendary escape artist and magician Harry Houdini. The special display took many months of coordination and planning and between the Museum and the casino. The Houdini Museum has in their archives and storage spaces over 3,000 artifacts related to Houdini. Choosing items for the display that would be both transportable and the most representative of the legendary Houdini was a mammoth job. A lot of hard work & planning has resulted in an awe inspiring Houdini Exhibit. It was all done with the help of Gary Friedman, events co-coordinator of the Seminole Casino at Coconut Creek and producer Allen Valentine of Elite Marketing Group in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The Houdini exhibit will be on display for the entire month of February, 2011. Just a few of the items in the exhibit include; 1928 Book Houdini, His Life Story 1903 Framed Russian Magazine Houdini in Russia 1936 Framed photo Beatrice Houdini 1921 Book Houdini Rope Ties 1921 Ad for Houdini Rope ties book 1910 Book, Houdini Handcuff Secrets 2 1910 & 1911 Escape challenge letters 1924 Book Houdini Boston Medium Margery 1883 Houdini owned scrapbook and several (4) loose articles 1924 Book, Signed by Houdini, A Magician Among The Spirits 1925-1926 Houdini Souvenir Program 1920's 3 framed Red Magic Newspapers Houdini's Spirit Exposes Magazine Famous Houdini Lincoln photo 8x10 Full page newspaper article.
