Ross Woodbury who owned and operated the Magick Theatre in Nevada City for 20 years before selling it opened this intimate 40 seat screening room in early-2013. It was a showcase of independent, foreign and classic films. It closed in 2014.

Recent news stories indicate that after about a year and a half of operation this cozy little cinema is struggling. That’s too bad because it’s the only place in the area to see non mainstream product. Classic films (DVD I suspect) are featured on Thursdays (with free admission!) and newer independent and foreign product Friday through Sundays.

Notice on Magick Lantern’s website announces theatre is now closed but “we anticipate re-opening very soon under different and better circumstances! If you’re on our email list, we’ll keep you posted on al the details”.

The beginning of 2015 finds the future of the Magick Lantern uncertain. The previous owner has apparently removed the seats, the tiered platform that supported the seats and the projection and sound equipment and left, possibly searching for a new location as was indicated on the old website when the theatre closed.

Meanwhile a grass roots group of determined people is attempting to raise funds to buy equipment, operate as a non-profit organization and re-open the theatre (possibly under a different name) in it’s original location.
