This is a letter to explain some changes that will be happening at the Magic in regards to our ticket prices and popcorn prices. Please feel free to ask questions if you have any regarding the changes. But, we hope this letter helps to explain why the changes are taking place.
Starting Friday, June 17, all tickets prices will increase by $1.00 at the Magic Theatre.
The new prices will be:
Matinee (before 6PM) – $6.50
Thursday Discount Night -$4.00
(The last price increase for general tickets was January 2009. Senior/Student ticket prices have not increased since January 2007.)
Popcorn prices will increase to:
(The last increase in popcorn prices was more than two years ago.)
Because we use only organic popcorn, non-GMO Canola oil, and real butter, our popcorn costs are 3x higher than convential movie popcorn. But, we are committed to continuing to bring you delicious and healthy organic popcorn at a reasonable price.
As you can imagine, all of our expenses have risen over the past few years but we have kept our prices down as much as possible. We are dedicated to bringing you the best in arthouse titles, and we also take pride in our high presentation standards (which have included us investing more than $40,000 in upgrades to the projection and sound systems in the past year).
The management, staff and owner of the Magic Theatre genuinely appreciate the support and love that has been shown our way over the long history of the Magic. The Magic really is our home away from home. We want to be around for an even longer time to come. We hope you understand the need for these increases. There are great films out there deserving to be screened in a movie theatre with an appreciative audience watching together in the dark. And, we hope to continue to light the screen with images that make you think, feel, and inspire you.
