Today local magic parlor Holy City Magic announced that it is closing its doors. In a statement posted on Facebook, owner of Holy City Magic, Howard Blackwell, blamed "government bureaucracy and the disproportionate way the law is being enforced" for the location's closing.

You can find the full statement below.

Per Gov. Henry McMaster's orders, entertainment venues like theaters and performing arts centers are still not allowed to reopen during the current coronavirus pandemic.

Holy City Magic opened last July and hosted a slew of popular shows, bringing in local and national talent and even presenting family-friendly matinee performances.
