On Tuesday, September 29, the Redwood City Improvement Association, a non-profit community benefit district ran by a board of property owners, residents, community members and businesses, will release a new 3-D video mapping display, “Dia de los Muertos” for its weekly Magic Lantern 3-D Show sponsored by the Redwood City Parks & Arts Foundation and Climate Magazine. The display will be projected onto the San Mateo County History Museum Tuesday nights for two 15-minute shows. The public can come out to enjoy the free show on opening night at 8:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.

“One of Redwood City Improvement Association’s goals is to make Downtown Redwood City a desirable place for residents and visitors seven nights a week. We want people to come to our downtown, have dinner, go shopping, support our local businesses and then enjoy this show,” said Eric Lochtefeld, Redwood City Improvement Association’s President. “The Magic Lantern 3-D Show brings an entertaining attraction to our downtown and there’s no better place to host an event like this, than in the heart of our community—at our historic Courthouse Square.”

The new Magic Lantern 3-D Show: “Dia de los Muertos” is designed by world-renowned light show artist, Bart Kresa, who’s completed projects for Oprah Winfrey, Paramount Pictures, the Grammy Awards, HBO and more. The new display is inspired by the Halloween season and the Mexican holiday, “Day of the Dead.” The show consists of a five-minute pre-show, a five-minute video and a five-minute wind-down.
