The sorrow came from the film freaks almost immediately. On art house film forums and listservs, people bemoaning the death — yet again — of the Magic Lantern.

Almost as quickly came the offers to help. Ideas ranged from fundraising to doorbelling (seriously) to taking it over from owner Joe Davis to, oddly, just beginning to screen films in people’s houses.

Davis has taken one of those offers.

On Friday, the Magic Lantern will reopen its doors, now under the management of Zana Morrow.

There’s a lot up in the air right now, but the theater has films booked through the week of December 10: indie darlings Mesrine (parts one and two) and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.
