Our Policies

Storm Closures:

If The Magic Lantern closes due to inclement weather any tickets pre-purchased will be refunded in form of a gift certificate.

Online ticket purchases:

Thank you for choosing Magic Lantern Movie Theater, Bridgton. Maine Theaters generally open 20 minutes before showtime. Online ticketing customers will have to pick up their tickets at the ticket counter and this may require waiting in line at the theater.  All online sales are final. There will be no refunds!

No backpacks:

Here at the Magic Lantern, we do not allow any backpacks, bags, or large purses into our theaters. If you need the contents for medical (or other) reasons, we reserve the right to inspect them. Otherwise, please leave them in your vehicle.

Outside food and beverages (including outside containers and bottled water) are not allowed into our theaters.


For tickets sold for balconies, you must provide a valid government issued photo ID stating you are 21+! Please make sure you have handy when purchasing balcony seating- there will be no one under 21 admitted to the balcony area.

No weapons:

Here at the Magic Lantern, for the safety of both our customers and team members, we do not allow any firearms, knives, or weapons of any kind to be brought into the theaters or Web's Tavern. We reserve the right to ask you to bring your item back out to your vehicle. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.

Covid19 and Masking: Updated 3/26/2022

Because of our partnership with the University of Maine System, and with respect to the Maine CDC, we follow their guidelines. The Magic Lantern Innovation Center is making face coverings optional for students, staff, and visitors in its non-classroom facilities, both indoors and out, regardless of vaccination status, starting March 26, 2022. They are recommended for anyone who is not vaccinated and/or has underlying health concerns. Thank you for complying with our recommendations today and in the past.

The Maine 4H Foundation/ Magic Lantern Innovation Center is working in partnership with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and is requiring all staff to be vaccinated for COVID-19 by December 9, 2021.

Refunds For Movies can only be issued in the first half-hour of the scheduled movie for tickets bought in-house.
