Banachek reveals Toronto Star headline prediction at Kiehl’s

Today at Kiehl’s on Queen Street, Banachek returned to reveal his Toronto Star predictions, made one week ago on June 1. (Even the Toronto Star started to wonder if they were really so transparent that a mentalist could make such claims!)

After a demonstration of his powers of the mind – reading people’s thoughts, making impossible predictions, manipulating metal, bending forks and so forth – he set the stage to make his big revelation of the headlines stories from the front page of today’s Toronto Star.

With the original Kiehl’s ambassador who witness the original sealing there to verify each of her signatures, Banachek’s final predictions were revealed side by side with the front page of The Toronto Star held in front of the group. Audible gasps rang out as images Banachek revealed each of his predictions. He had even sketched rough images that matched photos on the front page. It was a stunner and there was no doubt that he nailed it.

But, is it real or is it fake?

Well, that’s up to you to decide.

During his week in Toronto, Banachek has demonstrated some amazing power of the mind. Come and see for yourself: is it real, or is it fake.

Banachek’s new show, The Alpha Project (directed by Jim Millan) runs June 8, 9, 10 at the Fleck Theatre at Harbourfront as part of the Mind Over Matter magic series for Luminato. Details and ticket information can be found here:www.magicana.com/banachek

Toronto Star talks to He Who Knows…

7 Jun

“How predictable is the front page news?
We’re about to find out.”

-Bruce DeMara, Toronto Star

When the Toronto Star asked the world’s leading mentalist, Banachek, about what he does and how he does it, Banachek was quoted to have answered cryptically, “I use verbal communication, non-verbal communications. There’s magic thrown in and there’s a conglomeration of different things and that’s what a mentalist does” (Banachek, The Toronto Star). Read more…

Join us as we await with bated breath for Banachek’s prediction of the front page headlines on June 9, 3PM @ Kiehl’s on 407 Queen Street West.
