I love the way they renovated the Magic Lantern. Any movie theater with a balcony is a treasure. Good food, always clean and a great place to see a movie.

You think to yourself, how can a movie theater be beautiful! But it is--words like modern, yet vintage and classic come into mind! It's apparently been here for a while, but was renovated relatively recently and is very popular the neighboring towns. It felt intimate and warm, very much unlike the large chain movie theaters and made for a very... More

I haven't been to a movie theatre in months and generally shun them because they are too sterile. We saw " The 100 Foot Journey" Friday evening. We had dinner at the attached pub; nice service and good pub food. The theatre was very intimate, a nice balcony with a good sound system. The seats are comfortable, rest rooms are... More

We live in the North Country of NH where we have to drive at least one hour to anything! We, by chance, found the Magic Lantern while looking for a good movie (The 100 Foot Journey - Excellent, by the way! Bridgeton and their Magic Lantern complex is modern, clean and absolutely beautiful and was only an extra 15 minutes... More

Stopped by this gem while staying at a family vacation home in Bridgton, Maine. The theatre has great prices, new releases, and is adorable. The theatre's themselves had less seats than we're used to, which was great - it made the experience all that much better. And the quality of the image was great - like watching HDTV - none... More

Magic Lantern is the place to watch and enjoy a movie. If over 21 you can sit in the balconies and have drinks. Atmosphere is very nice. It is decorated nice. Also has a pub with a very large screen to watch sports, especially football. I highly recommend this as a place to go in Bridgton.

You can't find this experience any where else around. People from Maine, Boston, NY, everywhere rave about it. Bathrooms are spotless as are the theaters. Great food and a solid value. Check it out! We do, at least twice a month.

You can't go wrong with the Magic Lantern - I have always gone with my kids so have not seen a movie in the balcony but will soon as a girls night out.... WIth the kids - have had a few birthday parties there and it is very reasonable. Went to day with my sons - "Mr. Peabody and Sherman"... More
