Magic City Auction: Inside the Two-Day Live Auction (Photos)

The parking was limited at the studio warehouse where Magic City was filmed, but that didn't stop the cars from filling up the lot and parking along the street in order to get a piece of the live auction Saturday and Sunday.

Playing on a flat screen TV (certainly not from the 1950s) in the lobby of the warehouse was on loop one of the two seasons of Magic City. Once you entered the actual lot, you walked over two red carpets - always the star treatment at a Jay Sugarman auction - and it felt like you were walking onto a working film set. Tables and desks and bedroom sets were all set up exactly as they were in the show, and as proof, various scene catchers were displayed in the area so you could point out any particular item.
