Professor Huhtamo’s Daring Adventures illuminated with magic lantern
Place: Velaslavasay Panorama, 1122 W. 24th St., 90007
Date/Time: August 2 and August 3, 2012 at 8:00PM
Admission: $15 ($12 for VPES Members and Children)
By means of a magnificent Victorian biunial magic lantern that once belonged to his great-grandfather, Prof. Huhtamo tells the story of his forefather’s adventurous life. An optical scientist and amateur astronomer, the elder Professor Huhtamo had his share of rare experiences: he climbed the Mont Blanc, observed the transit of venus, and got stuck in ice for an entire winter as a member of a polar expedition.
Prof. Huhtamo will be assisted by his daughter Margareta, an aspiring magic lantern showwoman and talented lantern slide painter, and her husband Olof, an accomplished musician and distinguished sound effects artist.
All in attendance will be furnished with a Frozen Treat, pleasing to both old and young.
