Brookledge was the name of Floyd G. Thayer's home and a retail location for the (Thayer Magic Company) in western Los Angeles, California, which included a Studio-theater. It was opened to the public in 1933.[1]

When Larsen Family purchased the company in 1942, they swapped houses and the Larsen's moved into Brookledge.[2]

After sitting (mostly) empty for decades, Brookledge was brought back to life in the 2000s with the launch of the "Brookledge Follies", an old-school variety-and-magic show.[3][4]
