Suprise Cinema is an incredibly fun and powerful mental miracle that packs small enough to fit the needs of close-up magic performers, while also playing big enough for parlor magic or stage magic.
For this special routine, Steve Cook's mind-blowing Symbol effect has been upgraded with a commercial film theme. Combine this with Peter Nardi's storyline and presentation, and you have a sure-fire winner that magicians and mentalists will adore.
You explain to your audience that you belong to a club called Suprise Cinema that allows you to watch 1 of 6 classic movies for free each month. However, here's the catch. You don't get to choose the movie. You only get to choose a screen number. Whatever is playing on that screen that month is the movie you get to watch.
But, here's where it gets really strange. Each month, they also send you a little red envelope. Without fail, sealed inside this envelope is a ticket that predicts exactly which movie you'll end up choosing.
It sounds crazy, but you offer to prove it to your audience using this month's selections (which conveniently just arrived).
Without any forcing, a spectator freely selects a screen number between 1 and 6. You then reveal what movie is playing on that chosen screen, and then remove the ticket from your red envelope to show it matches their selected film.
- NO switching, adding or ditching
- NO gaffed envelope (it really is empty at the end)
- NOT always the same film
- NO sleight of hand
Each Suprise Cinema set also includes an alternative ending with a duplicate film poster card. You can use this ending, the ticket ending or both for a double whammy! This effect is easily adjusted to suit your performance style.
Suprise Cinema uses gorgeous custom graphics with vibrant colors that truly pop on the professional-sized, superior quality cards. These cards also work great with parlor stands to play to bigger audiences.
