Lights Out at the Magic Lantern

Bridgton's Magic Lantern movie theater, built in 1929, will be closing because of structural problems with the building. The owners will be building a new theater with the same name, and incorporating some of the decorations from the old building.

I've never visited this theater, and now I won't get the chance. As a part-time projectionist at a local theater, I offer a tip of the aperture plate to the folks who have kept this piece of living history going for so long. May all your lens changes be flawless.
