The Vogue Theatre, located at the intersection of Colonial and Mills in Orlando’s Colonialtown neighborhood, was independently operated from its beginnings in the 1940s, right after World War II. It usually ran single features after their first runs at one of the downtown houses. After one bought a ticket, he or she proceeded forward (east) for 100 feet or so, and then turned left (north) to enter the auditorium. The sides were decorated with stained glass, lit from behind. The theatre had screen curtains, but never seemed to have a lot of patrons present.

After it closed in the early 1970s, a gas station was built on the site. A pharmacy currently occupies the space.

When I was a kid in the early 50’s I attended the Vogue on Saturday mornings. I think it was the “Great Big Armstrong Club”. Does anyone remember?
