I had rented The Vogue for a TV show I ran for SPIKE TV and Mountain Dew. You may see the MDN signs still up. Either way, we came in, tore out the seats and turned the inside into a TV set. I would never have wanted to tear it up if it was ever going to be restored into a theater again, but the current owners are the same ones that own the White Lotus on Cahuenga. They are waiting on a liquor license for when they reopen the place as a new club, so they rented it to me for a song which allowed me to produce my show there.

It was really neat to get to go inside and see every little part of the theater. The projection room (same one used in Fight Club) still had the triple platter machine and there were all sorts of old film cans and split reels. I did take some marquee letters for my apartment.

Sad to see it go as a theater, but I had a great time working there. BTW, I never ran into Fritz or any of the other spirits, but a few on my crew felt the presence of the children. And one of the men who came in to take out the seats never came back again after one night.

It’s a shame if this goes the way of The Hollywood and becomes an attraction instead of a theatre. By the way what was the name of that complex down the block from the Chinese theatre? It was a small plex, I think it’s closed now but I cant remember the name to look it up on here.

Sorry to report that contrary to what you see above, the Vogue is still empty and not showing 2nd run or any films. I’m a regular at the Egyptian across the street and the Vogue is -sadly- CLOSED.

The Vogue is alive and well with low priced 2nd run double bills.

The Vogue Theatre is located at 6675 Hollywood Blvd.. Designed by S. Charles Lee, the Vogue opened July 16, 1935 and became a showcase for Columbia Pictures. Though it was owned by former presidents of Fox West Coast Theatre. The Vogue was styled in the Streamline Modere look that was in vogue but was also inexpensive and easy to produce. This theatre attracted motorists and pedestrians alike with its neon marquee. Its auditorium was very simple, with no stage or balcony, but beautiful geometric murals on the walls. This theatre was built to be economically feasible and might have been influenced by S. Charles Lee’s “automat” theatre, The Studio afew blocks away at 6523 Hollywood Blvd. (aka: Holly Theatre)

I was a projectionist there along with L.B. (Burt) Daniels in the early to mid 80’s. Our paychecks were from Mann theatres and films we ran always opened with the Mann logo. I got laid off when the theatre went from a day and night theatre to strictly a night theatre in October 1984.

The Vogue is closed down. I’ve seen fake movie titles on it’s marquee. It may be turned into a swap meet or cheap souvenir shop.

In December 2001, the Vogue closed. The manager was selling everything from the lobby in front of the theater. He was not willing to say what was going to happen to the theater, nor would he give a tour. Let’s hope Hollywood/Highland doesn’t buy it and turn it into a giant Starbucks!

For the past two years, the Vogue has been one of the central venues for the annual fall international film festival held by the American Film Institute. Sadly the film is still in pretty sorry shape though one of the lobby walls now serves as a huge signature board where various luminaries who attend screenings there sign their names and sometimes contribute a doodle.
