Magicana is pleased to announce a new, online exhibition featuring Dale Harney and The Magic Palace.
Over thirty-five years ago, Dale Harney created a magic sensation in Canada with The Magic Palace. Produced in Calgary with magicians from Canada, the United States and Europe, the series brought magic directly into viewers' homes each week. The whole series was almost lost to history because the original video reels were recorded over - a common practice of the time. The series was almost forgotten.
Luckily, individual episodes were recorded by magic enthusiasts and preserved in their collections. We have gathered footage from dozens of episodes, and thanks to the technology of today and to the philanthropy of the Slaight Family Foundation, they have been digitized and indexed. You can now enjoy over twenty-five hours of magic presented by over sixty different performers. And, as with all of our online exhibitions, the content is available for all to enjoy for free.
For those who remember watching The Magic Palace, welcome back. To those who are watching for the first time, as Dale used to say, "You're in for a real treat!"
