Theatre Of Magic Pinball By Bally 1995 at www.pinballrebel.com
The artwork on the glass is really cool and some of the best artwork Linda Deal did while she was at Williams. My other favorite work of hers has to be Cirqus Voltaire.
This is the famous magic trunk and tiger saw. Early games had a working saw and now kits are available to make the saw on your Theatre come to lfe as well.
In this shot the magnet that levitates the ball can be seen on the left and the trap door that leads to the basement on the right.
Here you can make out the Theater lights and the MAGIC lights. The Wizard mode on this pin is not the best as WMS pins go but its okay. Most people never make it that far anyway. You can also see the captive ball on the top left.
The rollover lanes at the top are equipped with a mirror to make them visible to the player.
The side artwork is also awesome and it continues on with the magic trunk theme. I have a set of gold legs ordered for my pin and will be putting them on when they come in. I think they will tie in nicely with the artwork colors.

Notes: I bought this game from an arcade where it did not see much action.
The cabinet, playfield, and backglass are all mint.
I put on a new trunk and now the machine looks brand new.
I really enjoy this game and the theme seems to attract lots of players.
