“`Gearbox founder and magician Randy Pitchford has agreed to a deal to buy the Magic Castle in Hollywood. It is the headquarters for the Academy of Magical Arts, a group of magicians and enthusiasts dedicated to the celebration and preservation of magic.

“`The Magic Castle is an Edwardian manor in a Gothic style built in 1908. It is a property on Franklin Avenue, a clubhouse and performance venue. The pandemic forced a closure of the once-popular site and threatened to permanently shut down the landmark.

“`Magicians including David Copperfield and Penn Jillete are lining up to praise Pitchford for his efforts.  The deal includes the Magic Castle on-site hotel and Pitchford has not yet revealed the price or his future plans for renovation. One thing is certain… The venue will remain a place for the presentation of magic.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
