GENERAL CIGAR HALL OF MAGIC OFFERS GIANT SMOKE RINGS, MAGIC AND SPORTS MOVIES TO THRONGS AT WORLD'S FAIR

One of the World's Fair's most popular exhibits - the General Cigar Hall of Magic - offers a continuous live magic show, thrilling sports action movies and other exhibits to the throngs attracted by its unusual landmark - machine lofting giant smoke rings high above the Fair. There is no admission charge. The magic show - created and narrated by television's renowned wizard Mark Wilson - plays three times an hour in an ultra-modern Magic theatre, and includes such classic thrillers as sawing a woman in half and levitation. The films of sports including boxing, sky diving and baseball were shot from overhead with a special camera and are projected onto a sunken screen to give a feeling of immediate participation.
