MILT LARSEN / co-founder of The Magic Castle (http://www.magiccastle.com/), is preparing for a new 20th Century Fox film about The Magic Castle, directed by McG (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8kAdZsYPoo&feature=youtu.be), in conjunction with the release of a new book, entitled “My Magical Journey: The First 30,000 Days” (ISBN: HB: 978-1-939178-00-8 SB: 978-1¬939178-01-5). 2013 is the 50th anniversary of the Hollywood landmark. In November of 2009 the historic structure once known as the Lane Mansion celebrated its centennial. On Jan 2nd, 1963 that same structure became, what is now known as, the world famous Magic Castle. In January, 2013, fans and fanatics of the mystical and mysterious world of illusion gathered to celebrate its 50th anniversary.

The Magic Castle has grown over the years from its original design to include 13 performance spaces including close-up magic, the Parlor of Prestidigitation and, of course, The Palace of Mystery. Practically every great magician of the modern era has appeared within walls, as well as a few noted amature illusionists including Cary Grant, Johnny Carson, Jason Alexander, Dom Deluise, Tony Curtis, Neil Patrick Harris, to name a few. The Magic Castle is not only the showplace for some of the greatest magicians from around the globe, it also houses one of the largest original collections of Houdini's great tools of the trade including his personal handcuffs, straight jacket, metamorphosis trunk and famous milk can escape in the Houdini Séance Room.

The organization promotes the art of magic, encourages fellowship and maintains the highest ethical standards for the art.
