The Magician is an engaging, brilliantly conceived tale of deceit from one of cinema’s premier illusionists.

Max von Sydow stars as Dr. Vogler, a traveling mesmerist in the 19th century whose magic is put to the test in Stockholm by the cruel, royal medical adviser Dr. Vergérus. The result is a diabolically clever battle of wits that’s both frightening and funny, shot in rich, gorgeously gothic black and white.

Ingmar Bergman’s The Virgin Spring follows at 7 p.m.

• Watch a trailer for the traveling Ingmar Bergman retrospective.
