We attended the Theater performance. Each of the three performers were unique and funny. I couldn't believe how fast the time went by. Give Smoke and Mirrors Magic a try

What a great find! My daughter wanted to go to a magic show for her 21st B-day and after some searching we found Smoke and Mirrors. We didn't know what to expect, but we gave it a shot and we were glad we did! The place may look non-descript from the outside, but don't let that fool you! Smoke & Mirrors, remember? Inside is a well set up & cozy auditorium with very friendly people. The size allows for a lot of audience participation and the owners and performers were extremely friendly and chatty before and after the show. What a great night! Thanks guys! More...

This theater is incredible. They bring in the top names in magic. The theater is very intimate with only 60 seats in the house which means there isn't a bad seat. If you are visiting Philly, the theater is right off the rail line so it's very accessible. Be sure to check this place out. More...

The shows are awesome, the staff is friendly.Pros:- Great shows. I've never been disappointed by any of their magic shows. - The building inside is nicely decorated and sets the mood well for the experience.- The employees are all gracious and friendly. - Parking is accessible. - Wheelchair friendly. Cons:- The outside of the building could have a more on theme look to make the whole experience better starting from the moment you see the place. More...

Smoke & Mirrors Magic Theater say they bring in the best magicians. I have been there there times and the magicians never fail the audience. Each magician performs their own magic and people are astounded. I'm sure everyone watches them very carefully, as I did, but yet we cannot detect any sleight of hand or trickery. They appear with their props and even invite people from the audience to participate on stage. The performance is about one and a half hours and they truly do amaze everyone. The theater is located back in a row of different businesses so if you're going for the first time you should allow time to locate it. It is near the Sunoco gas station and Tavern on Pine. More...

This is a small venue. You feel part of the show. I was totally mezmorized throughout. When the show was over I was disappointed it was so short. When I looked at the clock I realized I was there for 2 hours. That is how captivating it was. More...

It's always great at "Smoke & Mirrors" (S&M), seeing the top magicians and mentalists from around the world perform! Having a local venue such as S&M in the Delaware Valley area is a real asset for the magic community. Seeing five fellow magicians in the audience is, itself, a statement - when you see magicians hanging out, you know this is the place to be if you want to see really great magic! More...

My son Ned and I were lucky enough to see the Carl Mercurio performance on July 12, 2019, served with a Gino Mozzarella appetizer. It was an outstanding, entertaining, hilarious, and magical evening! Ned was even volunteered to "donate" an initialed 50 dollar bill (a high school graduation gift) to be rolled up by Carl Mercurio and used to even out the legs on his magic table... only to be turned into a worthless scrap of paper... and then later appear, still initialed, inside a kiwi that had been in an audience member's hand since the start of the show! Amazing! And sticky! More...

Can’t say enough good things about this place. Saw the 5/11/19 show with Will and a few bonus magicians. Funny, entertaining and an all around great time, can’t wait to go back. Marty the owner was such a pleasant man too. Got me a bandaid when I got a small cut, showed me several tricks for purchase and just a real nice, good hearted guy. Check out this awesome place, guarantee you will not be disappointed. The 5 star reviews say it all. See you again soon guys, looking forward to my next visit.. Jack More...

We had an amazing night out at smoke and mirrors. The theater was very intimate. There was not one bad seat in the place. Very reasonably priced and the show was amazing They bring in different entertainers often so chances are you'll never see the same show twice.

I had a wonderful night filled with magic and entertainment! In a beautiful theater, perfectly thought out with quality entertainment. I highly recommend a night out of magic at this theater. You will not be disappointed. Plus it's affordable! That's what I like about it. You can bring your family, you can bring your friends and you're going to have a good time, while being able to afford it. The owners really care about giving you quality entertainers at an affordable price and having magic in this area is awesome!! More...

As the flyer says: "Tired of bars or another night at the movies?"My brother got us here. It was FANTASTIC. Really amazing. I got chosen to participate, and even 6 inches away I was still just dumbfounded - it's a cool feeling! The night we went, we saw Daniel Roy and Danny Ray - a terrific double-bill. The owner was very friendly and informative, and is passionate about having a European-style "close magic" theater in the area. It is WELL WORTH the trip and the tickets. A great night out. Evening shows are family-friendly. It's in a strip mall/warehouse-y looking place - head to the back of the parking lot and park there. Find it, and enjoy! More...

I've known Marty Martin for over 35 years. In my humble opinion, he's one of the best coin magicians alive today! I learned more from him in an hour than I did in a lifetime of doing magic. MUCH CONTINUED SUCCESS, MARTY! One of these days, I'm going to stop by and visit you! Be well! More...

Such a great experience! A small, quaint theater that poses both comedy and magic. I would definitively recommend this place for something fun to do after dinner. It’s about a 90 minute show with the MC starting off the show. Then a warm up act comes out before the main act. All in total about 90 minutes. We saw ROCCO. He was amazing. More...

I would like to offer the suggestion that at every performance, you offer the suggestion to the audience that they "check-in" on Facebook. That way you constantly have the word going out to "THEIR" friends that they are missing out by not being there. More...

We did the family magic show and it was fantastic! Easily the best live magic show I've ever seen. The magicians were extremely talented and funny too. My nine year old son loved it as well. The magicians take many volunteers from the audience and my son was chosen too. He loved it and wants to go back. I'm a parent that has grown tired of social media and electronic devices so seeing so many kids captivated and entertained by live passionate performers was very refreshing. More...

Absolutely the Best place to see magic on the East coast ! Arguably the best place in the country to see some of the worlds best performers. The Theatre itself is Beautiful and as soon as you walk through the doors it feels like you are transferred into another realm. The owners are absolutely wonderful guys who treat their guest amazingly. All of the shows are great! Book tickets today for the most unique and magical night you can have in Philadelphia. More...

I highly recommend this show! I’ve been to a lot of magic shows - several higher end ones too - David Copperfield, etc. I didn’t think this would be spectacular since it’s a small theater in a small suburban neighborhood- boy was I wrong ! The caliber of magicians was much more than I expected- they were great! I’ll definitely go back! More...

We went to the July 14th show this evening featuring Harrison Greenbaum and had a wonderful time! It was our first time at the Smoke & Mirrors Magic Theater in Huntingdon Valley and it certainly will not be the last. The theater itself is beautiful and intimate - there's no such thing as a bad seat in the house. Mr. Greenbaum's performance was fantastic! My wife and I were in the first row and, along with other audience members, were active participants. (So be on your toes! ;-) ) A blend of comedy and magic that was both hysterical and amazing. Seriously, you WON'T be disappointed! More...

I've been doing magic for the past 45 years. It's a passion of mine. It is always a treat to be entertained by a fellow magician and to be truly entertained. The Smoke and Mirrors Theater brings high caliber magic talent to the community. I live in Scranton, PA and have been to two shows do far. They were both fantastic! I saw David Corsaro this past Saturday. Awesome! Very entertaining! I am heading back this weekend for a show and again in on June 2nd. More...

I've thoroughly enjoyed every show I've seen at this theater. But yesterday I tried out their Family Show with my grandsons. They LOVED it--as did every child in the audience, AND their parents! The magician quickly got the kids enthused, and had many of the kids join him to help (ages 6-maybe 10 yrs old at yesterday's show). They were adorable--watching them was fine entertainment! More...

30 April 2018

Took my nephews to the children's show this past Sunday... the magicians were great, and the kids were super into it. It was interesting watching the parents sit back and take a few hours "off". I highly recommend for all ages (though adults without kids should stick to the adult shows). More...

This is really great. It is so nice to see this art still being presented. Yes, this is an art. This is real Entertainment. Funny saying that Magic is real, but technically it is since it is not done through anything digital. This is great. More...

GREAT TIME TO BE HAD!! Not only are the entertainers top rate, Danny and Marty are so passionate about magic that it is contagious! I have been attending their classes for a few weeks and cant recommend it more. If you are, like me, just looking to entertain friends, or have higher goals, these classes are the best starting point. In just a couple weeks I have learned enough to bring amazed looks to many faces! SIGN UP NOW! More...

If you love magic and laughter, then this is a great place to go! This place is conveniently located in Huntingdon Valley, has extremely comfortable seats in an intimate theater (60 seats), and is something different and fun to do on a Saturday evening. The owners are not only extremely friendly and welcoming, but they are also very talented magicians. Our headliner was Scott Alexander - I had not looked him up prior to going because I didn't want any trick spoilers. He was top notch and kept us laughing and looking carefully to uncover the magic behind his tricks (which we couldn't do). Then when we got home I youtubed him and saw all of the references from his introduction - among them, America's Got Talent finalist and on Penn and Teller Fool Us (and if you love magic you have to watch this TV show) and headlining in Vegas casinos - he was the real deal and we felt fortunate to have seen his show at such a cool and local venue! 5 stars from us and we will be back!!

Mary Martin and Danny Archer proprietors of the all new Smoke and Mirrors Magic Theatre in Huntington Valley, Pennsylvania are the greatest Magicians and nicest gentlemen you definitely have to meet! Their skills and talents along with their knowledge of the Magic industry are the perfect combination for success. They have brought a much needed venue to the area that has been absent for a very long time. You will agree when you meet these two long time friends of mine and visit their spectacular magic facility. Fun entertainment and much more for everyone! Thanks Marty and Danny for your dedication to the magic industry. More...

I saw the Saturday night show on the opening weekend and I was blown away! This place is first class all the way. The shop looks terrific and the lobby/waiting area is beautifully appointed. The theater is the best venue for viewing intimate magic in the country. You have a clear view of the performance area from every seat in the house, with no one more than 15 feet from the "stage". The array of talent booked through November is incredible with some of the best magicians from all over the USA performing there. This is a don't miss opportunity to see wonderful magic in an amazing environment. We will be back again and again! More...

Ever since I was a little child I so loved magic. I never wanted to know how it was done I just loved the fact that it thrilled me. There's never been a venue around anywhere where you could just go on a Saturday night and just be amazed. Smoke and Mirrors gives you that. Treat your inner child!! More...
