The House of Magic show at Melco Resorts and Entertainment Ltd. property Studio City has been closed for renovation for an undisclosed period of time, the Integrated Resort has informed Business Daily.
A note from brokerage firm Sanford C. Bernstein on Monday stated that the show at Studio City had closed, with the property website removing its advertising for the non-gaming attraction.
‘For Studio City, the House of Magic has not been a successful venue. Melco is looking at repositioning portions of the property but has not yet announced a replacement feature,’ reads the Bernstein note.
According to the property management, the show has been suspended for renovation, with no specifics provided as to whether the show will be maintained or altered.
The House of Magic was a US$40 million show devised by American illusionist Franz Harary, with the attraction described as the ‘world’s first multi-theatre, immersive visitor magic experiences’ upon its opening in 2015.
Business Daily enquired of Melco Resorts if the show was to be removed or replaced but no response had been received when this newspaper went to print.
