Privacy policy

The Magic Castle/Academy of Magical Arts knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we have created this Site Privacy Policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to do so reasonably and responsibly.

This Site Privacy Policy describes our information gathering and dissemination practices only for this Web site: (the “Site”).

Information You Give Us.

We receive and store any information you enter on our Site or give us in any other way. However, we do not collect any personal information about you unless you voluntarily submit such information to us. Our Site uses a Contact Us form for you to request information or send us comments. Contact information (like your e-mail address) from the Contact Us form is collected and used to send you a reply to your questions or concerns.

How about children?

We do not wish to obtain personal information from children who are using our Site unsupervised. Thus, we ask children to obtain the consent of their parent or guardian before providing us with any personal information.

How about cookies?

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and connection capabilities so that our Site can provide you with the optimal user experience. We also use cookies for Site visitor tracking. The information we collect is anonymous and The Magic Castle®/Academy of Magical Arts has no way of accessing any of your personally identifiable information through this system. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you are to receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, as cookies allow us to enhance your user experience, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Use of Information.

We use the information you provide us to perform the services for which such data was collected. For example, if you sign up for an e-mail newsletter, we will send the e-mail newsletter to the address you provide us. We also use the information you provide us for internal marketing purposes and for administration of the Site.

How about third parties?

Information about our visitors and members is an important part of our club, and we use it responsibly. We employ or partner with other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include processing credit card payments and fulfillment houses for mailing our monthly club newsletter. These agents have very limited access to the personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.


We use industry-standard methods to protect your personal information from unauthorized access. Among other techniques, we usually store such information on a computer behind our “firewall” in a secure location, and we often restrict the number of employees internally who can access such data. Of course, there is no such thing as “perfect security” on the Internet. Further, please note that our servers are operated by a third party Web host whose actions we do not control.


As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide certain information, even though it might be needed to take advantage of many of our features. Our Site also provides you with the opportunity to choose not to receive communications from us and our partners. You have the following options for changing and modifying information previously provided or removing your information from our database so as not to receive future communications:

 Milt Larsen
April 9, 1931 – May 28, 2023


We’ve lost our beloved co-founder, and our hearts are hurting.


Milt passed away peacefully in his sleep just a few days after receiving special recognition of the Castle’s 60th anniversary at our 2023 awards show. The moment was deeply felt by all in attendance, and Milt received two thunderous and prolonged standing ovations. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to say thank you one last time to our cherished co-founder for bringing so much magic into all our lives.



Milt never wanted to grow up, and his childlike wonder sparked an imagination that had no boundaries. Milt was an inspiration to all of us, with a life that was full to the very last moment.



Your Board of Directors, Board of Trustees, Arlene Larsen, Erika Larsen, Jessica Hopkins, Randy and Kristy Pitchford, the staff, and everyone else who loves Milt are committed to continuing his vision and ensuring our club and its remarkable clubhouse will be with us for a long, long time.


Thank you, Milty. We love you. And we miss you.
