More Information



Celebrants hoping to experience the thrill of a traditional Victorian spirit circle are invited to come to Excalibur for one night only — Halloween, the actual anniversary of Houdini’s death. Neil Tobin, necromancer, creator of the long-running Supernatural Chicago, will be hosting this authentic theatrical recreation on behalf of and in cooperation with the Chicago Assembly of the Society of American Magicians, which Houdini founded in 1919.

Tickets for this 75-minute experience also include the cover charge to Excalibur nightclub for the evening, complete with its incomparable Halloween festivities.
