Foretelling the Future of the Magic Castle

by Patt Morrison

Milt Larsen - writer, actor, entrepreneur, and magician - created the Magic Castle with the help of his brother, Bill. Since its opening in 1963, it has become arguably the world's most famous club for magicians and magic enthusiasts and a Hollywood icon, but the 10-acre plot on which it sits is on the market. Selling it might take a real magic trick, though. The owners are requiring that the Castle and its neighbor, Yamashiro Restaurant, remain as they are and carry on business as usual. Patt talks history and the future of the Castle.
