This theatre opened in the early 70’s as the Trackside Twin Cinema and was built and operated by Gulf States Theatres. They also operated The Ritz and The State theatres in downtown Bogalusa. Both of these theatres closed in late 70’s. Gulf States added three auditoriums to the Trackside in 1984 and sold the theatre in November of 1986 along with the entire Gulf States circuit to United Artists Theatres. UA operated the theatre until 1998 and closed it. It remained vacant for about six months until new operators were found and changed the name to Magic Cinema.

During the Gulf States operation, there were two prominent managers, Sis Natasha and Violet Davis. Not many kids were able to get anything over on these two.

I know, I haven’t found that they have a website. They’re wonderful people, they really believe in the community which they serve. The last I was through Bogalusa, the cinema was closed, the Coming Soon feature boards still had Magic Cinemas logo. Although the cinema was actually closed, they were there, along with a work crew cleaning and etc. I went inside and spoke briefly with them while they were preparing to reopen, they spoke with alot of positive and hope in their voices.
