Arrived in Detroit early Thursday morning for first week of screenings at Birmingham 8. The good people of Detroit have been very receptive to hearing about my documentary films “Houdini” and “A Circus Life” showing this week at the Birmingham 8 theater June 7th -13th – One Week Only! It’s especially exciting to be in Detroit as this is the place that Houdini died Oct 31st 1926 at the Grace hospital. Most people don’t know he died here and it mysteriously happened on Halloween. The film sheds light on many of the Houdini mysteries.
One of the highlights today was meeting up with a high school friend Missy Ziniti who lives in Detroit. We hadn’t seen each other in 30 years so it was great fun to catch up on our lives.
This afternoon I did an interview with WDET radio for the The Craig Fahle Show. Craig is very knowledgeable about the subject of Houdini and was a pleasure to talk with in studio. The interview will run tomorrow morning around 10am centeral time on Craig’s show which broadcasts on the FM dial at 101.9 MHz.
Friday morning I’m doing a live TV interview with Lee Thompson on Fox 2 Detroit. Looking forward to meeting Lee and talking about the documentary films.
Hope to see lots of people at the show Friday night 7pm and 10:15 show and I will be doing Q&A following the shows Friday and Saturday. Here is a link to buy tickets:
For any folks interested, I will be brining two pair of Houdini handcuffs owned by the great Houdini along with a copy of his two birth certificates and death certificate. Come early to the theater and stop by and say hi.
