Multi-award winning feature documentary GENERAL MAGIC is the untold tale of how a great vision and epic failure changed the world. The ideas that dominate the tech industry and our day to day lives were born at a secretive Silicon Valley start-up called ‘General Magic’, which spun out of Apple in 1990 to create the “next big thing”. General Magic shipped the first handheld personal communicator (or “smartphone”) in 1994. The film combines rare archival footage with powerful honesty from the “Magicians” today, reflecting on the most influential Silicon Valley company no one has ever heard of.


Featuring legendary members of the original Macintosh team, along with the creators of the iPod, iPhone, Android, and eBay, this is the story of one of history’s most talented tech teams, who after a great failure, went on to change the lives of billions.

With special guests for a post-film discussion TBD.

The Science on Screen program is an initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre, with major support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The Michigan Theater’s Science on Screen program is also sponsored by Arbor Research Collaborative for Health.
