Releasing August 5th and 6th at the LA Convention Center The Summoning is a large scale interactive exhibit that begins by placing the audience into the role of urban explorers ghost-hunting in the sealed basement of a Hollywood Hotel. The experience is fully themed with period sets, lighting, projection effects, and an original synthwave score. The story continues as a limited collector’s edition box set of augmented reality prints and stories.
In the Summer of 1987 the followers of occultist Raphael Davidson went on a killing spree that stunned Hollywood. The murders lead authorities to the basement of the dilapidated Hotel Magnolia. When the police raided the hotel they were shocked to find no traces of the cult or its leader. It was as if they had vanished into thin air, but they left something in their place… something so terrifying that the city sealed the building.
You and your group of urban explorers are about to enter the basement of the Magnolia. Untouched for 30 years you’ll be the first people to document this forgotten crime scene. Using your smartphone to reveal a hidden dimension will you survive learning the secret of The Summoning?
