Jamie Allan’s “Illusionarium” in Toronto

For all those readers in Toronto, there is an immersive experience running through October 31st that I only recently found out about. The summary for the event, as listed on the website, reads:

“Explore a labyrinth of mysterious rooms transporting you to different eras of illusion.

Take 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, this is the first time audiences can marvel at the greatest illusions up close – all in a socially-distanced setting.

Conceived by British high-tech magician, Jamie Allan (iMagician), this experiential exhibit blends Jamie’s encyclopedic knowledge on the history of magic with state-of-the-art-technology to bring illusions of the past into the 21st century.”

Quite a mouthful to be sure. However, I wouldn’t be talking about this if Doug didn’t play a part in the proceedings. Apparently, in the section known as the “On-Air Studio” is a tribute to the man himself and other television magicians.

It’s nice to see Doug remembered in such a way. As one of Canada’s famous sons, I’d be surprised  if he wasn’t.

If any readers out there, make their way to this experience I’d be interested in hearing more about it, and about how much of Doug is shown.
