You might walk right by it and not notice. You might also not realize that there's a 150-seat theater in the middle of this busy downtown area. Of course, if you've walked by, it could be because of the quirkiness of the place. Strange photos...More

I was really, really rooting for Magicopolis because I adore magic, local theatre and supporting Santa Monica institutions like this place. But man, was I counting down the minutes until we could go home. Over the last two years, I've seen between 75-100 magicians and...More

Held our daughter's birthday party here. We haven't laughed so hard in a long time. The kids had so much fun and surprisingly, so did the parents. It's an old-fashioned, hokey kind of place, family-owned business from a multiple generation family of magicians. The magician...More

Went to the matinee show and it was boring. Skits were bush league and the Magic was stale. Old tricks that were anything but amazing.

roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
