Description

Did you know on the Third Thursday of each month, Jewish Museum Milwaukee is open late? That’s right – we stay open until 7:00 pm so you have extra time to explore our exhibits!


In the 1910s, movie theaters were quickly becoming strong competition for the vaudeville stage. Always trying to stay ahead of the times, Harry Houdini got into the movie business and even started his own studio, the “Houdini Picture Corporation.” 

In 1918, he starred in a 15-part silent serial called “The Master Mystery.” This series tells the story of a Justice Department agent, Quentin Locke, who investigates a powerful cartel that is protected by a robot and using a gas weapon known as “The Madagascar Madness.” Highlights of the series include many of Houdini’s daring escapes that were captured with no additional camera tricks. 

We will be screening the entire series throughout the run of Inescapable: The Life and Legacy of Harry Houdini; the film will be shown in three parts on consecutive ‘Thirdsdays’ starting in October. Join us to view the first five parts of this important piece of film and Houdini history. 

Screening begins promptly at 5:30 PM and should last about an hour.
