'The Science of Magic & Illusion' in Pasadena March 2

Bob Friedhoffer will present The Science of Magic and Illuion on Friday, March 2, at 7 p.m. in Caltech’s Beckman Auditorium.

Art and science come together as Friedhoffer performs one feat after another, and proves that our senses can truly be fooled. Obvious, but amazing, tricks our mind plays on us are revealed. Friedhoffer answers questions, such as: how are people really fooled by magic? Is it principles of physics, chemistry or biology? Or is it the science of our mind, psychology and neurology?

Tickets to this performance are priced at $15; youth (high school age and younger): $10.00 (unreserved seating). Senior rush tickets will go on sale for $10.00, beginning one-half hour before the performance (subject to availability). Tickets can be purchased at the Caltech Ticket Office, 332 S. Michigan Ave., Pasadena.

Parking for Beckman Auditorium is located at 332 S. Michigan Ave., Pasadena (south of Del Mar Boulevard). For further information, call the Caltech Ticket Office at (626) 395-4652.
