Total fun night out for our whole family. There is food to purchase before the show in case you don't have time to have dinner before show. We were all amazed at Jay's mentalist tricks. Will go again!

The doors open and hour before showtime. We have food and drinks in the lounge and close-up magic. The show lasys 75-90 minutes. The entire nigh is 2-2.5 hours if you come for the entire experience.

The show is not inappropriate for the 5 year old but this is not a kids magic show. Children have an amazing time at the theater. The 8 year old will have a blast.

$45.00 is correct. We paid an extra $10.00 each for guaranteed front row seats. It was very worth the extra, but keep in mind the theater only has about 6 rows, so all seats are good.

Best Magic Show in San Fran (5 Replies)
My partner and I will be in San Francisco for the weekend, and I would like to go to a magic show. I'd prefer something that's more geared towards adults than children -- although I've noticed that there are usually shows later at night, so that could take care of it. I've read a lot about the Marrakech Magic Theater, but I'm wondering if he has any large tricks in his show (more than just slight of hand stuff). Thanks for your help!!

SF is not Vegas and known for magic shows the one arlosmom mentions and the one you mention seem to have reviews so check them out please and decide. Best ? I doubt you will find people who have been to both and can compare The reviews for both seem good so I am sure they are fun. How about something more local Beach Blanket Babylon - a SF tradition. But if you want magic then go for magic
