The Magic Lantern at Ringwood Manor will be held inside the historic Great Hall and include demonstrations by filmmaker, author, and magic lanternist Joel Schlemowitz of the 18th-century Phantasmagoria, a show which used the magic lantern to create images of ghosts and spirits. This will be followed by projections of some of Mr. Schlemowitz’ collection of 19th-century magic lantern slides, including animated slip-slides, gearwork moving images, and dissolving views.
