The Amet Magniscope (Central Music Hall, 30 novembre et 1er décembre 1896)

L'Amet Magniscope propose des projections animées au Central Music Hall :

The Amet Magniscope will be the attraction at Central Music hall Monday and Tuesday evenings, Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, under the auspices of the Y.M.C.A. Charles Craig, the character impersonator, will accompany the machine.

The Telegraph-Courier, Kenosha, jeudi 26 novembre 1896, p. 8.

Un autre article, en forme dialoguée, évoque également l'appareil :

Is this the Y.M.C.A?
What kind of entertainment comes to Central Music hall, under your auspices next Monday and Tuesday evenings?
The "Amet Magniscope."
What in all the world is that?
Well, it is something like a stereoptican, only you see everything moving quite naturally.
That must be great.
There will also be good music, and Charles F. Craig, the well known character impersonator, will take part of your time.
How much are the tickets?
Only 25 cents, good for either night.
Where can I get half a dozen?
At Woodward & Conley's or Hackley's Corner Drug store.
Thanks, good bye.
Good bye.
