Demolition on the auditorium has begun, broken through the wall on the North elevation. Monday would be the next day to get photos, as they will likely finish off the auditorium then. Contrary to what I previously mentioned, the facade will not be removed, numbered and replaced. I originally thought that due to the 3 containers stacked in front of it. Instead it will remain in place, anchored to those 3 containers via I beams for the duration of demolition and new construction. I had thought of the removal & replacement scenario, because that is what was done to the Cedar Hotel on State Street at Cedar. But that facade did not have landmark status. It was just thankfully saved and reattached to the new structure behind it, to appease the neighborhood and alderman in the early discussions. I have uploaded a few photos from today of the facade reinforcement and the broken through North elevation auditorium wall, as visible from North Avenue.

The only photos of the Vogue so far are those in Photos between Overview and Comments under the theatre name at the top of the page. The Guild Theatre was the one you are thinking of on Sheridan between Broadway and Pine Grove. It has it’s own page under Nearby Theaters on the right above under Additional Info. Here is the link to the Guild’s page with only one photo.
