Between the 1930s-1960s movie theaters would have live shows that featured magicians performing magic tricks, séances, special effects and scary skits. This was at a time when people were unaware of how these seemingly incredible tricks were pulled off and it was a relatively new form of entertainment before the invention of the haunted attraction. Many of these spook shows doubled with horror movies and played at smaller movie theaters during the Halloween season or different parts of the year. Eventually these shows would incorporate bloody special effects and be referred to as Midnight Horror Shows. These shows were daring for their time, but would phase out by the end of the 1960s.
My eldest daughter and I went to see the Hobbit on Christmas Eve, and we both found it amazing. I told her I was going to make a copy of Thror's Map including the "moon runes". When you hold it up to the light, the runes show through the paper. It was a fun project, but nerve-wracking.
