Over the past 16 years, an extraordinary group of musicians has come together to celebrate the universal power of music.  Named for the ancient trade route linking Asia, Africa and Europe, the Silk Road Ensemble, an international collective created by acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma, exemplifies music's ability to blur geographical boundaries, blend disparate cultures and inspire hope for both artists and audiences.  The film creates an intensely personal chronical of passion, talent and sacrifice (2016)

Magick Lantern open.

   We need at least 15 pre-paid ticket holders on the Thursday before the date of the movie to know if we can afford to present most films.

Waiting until the day of the show to purchase your ticket may end up in our canceling the film if we have insufficient attendance.

Many volunteers also commit their time on the day

of the show to lend their help.

Your advance ticket purchase is needed to ensure Magick Lantern

can continue to show these films.

See you at the movies!
