Grand Illusion Entertainment Complex

Remember Magic Island, the dinner theater that was supposed to have re-opened in its original faux Egyptian edifice along the Southwest Freeway?

A newcomer to the local magic scene wants to build a similar style operation — or so touts a website, Facebook page and Kickstarter campaign detailing plans.

The project is being called “Grand Illusion” and would include an upscale dining facility with “Las Vegas-style magic acts,” a lounge, a comedy venue and a music venue in 50,000 square feet.

The group behind the $6 million project said it has identified a location in a retail building on four acres of land near downtown.

The players involved include Robert Lee Smith, who has a technology background, an entertainer known as “Banachek” and restaurant executive Jeff Meinecke, according to the Kickstarter page.

Can't see this having a fate that differs significantly from that of Magic Island.

A fire following hurricane damage?

A fire following hurricane damage?

 

Not that specific, I guess.

 

As I recall they were only intermittently open for business before the fire. When a business does not reopen after something that is normally an insured loss, you have to think it was in bad shape one way or another.

 

Brennan's would be the counter-example.
