Behind-the-scenes tour yields many treasures

It's a special place and usually off limits. The back rooms and areas of the Buffalo Museum of Science are kept under lock and key and for good reason. Back there, away from the public view, you will find thousands of unusual treasures. Director of collections, Kathy Leacock knows here way around back here. Our first stop is a room filled with dead things in bottles. Kathy says "this is our fluid preserved collection, we keep our items by material type" and adds "this is an example of a collection that we don't exhibit, we use for research." Our next stop is a room where Kathy shows the "Knox Money Collection". Unusual objects cover the large table as Kathy explains that before we had standardized currency, almost everything could be used for a form of payment including: tobacco, cheese, salt, hair and liquor. Other treasures in this behind-the-scenes tour include artifacts from the Pan-American Exhibition, a two headed calf and a large taxidermy tiger named "Tony". These special after-hours and behind the scenes tours are available to adults age 18 and older and you can find more information at the Buffalo Museum Of Science website.

LED Screens bring special magic to "Mamma Mia!"

A special kind of scenery magic has arrived at Buffalo's Kavinoky Theatre in the form of LED screens . The new screens were purchased through a grant for $47,000 and according to Managing Director Loraine O'Donnell the new technology will be "a game changer for the Kavinoky." The screens can be used in sections or all in one piece and can be programed to project anything. For their current production of "Mamma Mia!" the screens can easily project a beach seen and nightmare sequence as well as a more than a dozen other backgrounds.  Loraine says that "this is the same kind of technology that you have seen in at rock concerts and these screens have been used in theatre in Europe for more than a decade". O'Donnell who also appears in the productions says that the screens will not detract from the performance, but will enhance the production which runs through January 28th. More information available at the theatre's website
