After the meet and greets with participants the NY Shadow Chasers began the investigation of the theatre by introducing members and sharing equipment for everyone to investigate the theatre first hand with Joe Chin's assistance.

The first session that Joe Chin assisted conducted a 'Frank's Box' or 'Spirit Box' session on the stage and almost immediately the team began receiving responses.

Many investigators were able to capture various phenomena in the theatre including EVPs, ghostly 'orbs' on Full Spectrum Cameras, unexplained noises, energy readings and several participants that said they were touched by an unseen force were frightened enough to give up the investigation for the night while other continued to document the paranormal phenomena.
