A Curious Arcade - by Imaginary Theatre
Suitable for all ages.
Prepare to be intrigued by peculiar storytelling machines in this century-old arcade exhibit.
These elaborate gold coin-operated machines are the creations of virtuosic Australian inventor Celeste Mackellan, an obscure figure who disappeared in 1929 along with the mechanical curiosities she built.
Fascinated by Mackellan’s mysterious disappearance, an international consortium of collectors and creatives from Imaginary Theatre are slowly working to locate, extract and lovingly restore her machines to their former glory.
At A Curious Arcade, you can experience these mechanical wonders as they tell timeless stories that surprise and delight.
