Magic at Coney!!! – The Sunday Matinee EVERY Sunday Afternoon at 2 PM. Over 100 years ago, Coney Island was a beacon for magicians throughout the world. The local sideshows at Dreamland, Luna Park and Steeplechase Park, as well as the dance halls and theaters were a proving ground for those performing artists looking to hone their skills. Luminaries such as Houdini, his brother Hardeen, Cary Grant, William "Budd" Abbott, Dai Vernon, Jean Hugard and Al Flosso were featured artists who went on to stardom around the world. For the past three seasons, “Magic at Coney!!!” has re-kindled that spark of enchantment.
