The seats that are in the mezzanine section of Wichita’s Orpheum Theatre came from Salina’s Vogue Theatre.

Boxoffice of October 15, 1938, reported that the Vogue Theatre at Salina had opened the previous Thursday. The magazine’s October 22 issue reported some details of the event, and revealed that architect Larry P. Larson had designed the Vogue.

The Vogue’s original owner, Gus Diamond, sold the house to Lon Cox in 1949. Boxoffice of July 23 said that Cox would take over operation of the Vouge and of the Howard Theatre at Arkansas City, which he had also bought from Diamond, on August 1. Diamond would move to Los Angeles where he would devote his time to his interests in the Pacific Drive-In Theatres circuit.

Cox operated the Vogue until 1962 when he sold the house to the Dickinson circuit, reported in Boxoffice of June 25. The house operated at least into the mid-1970s, and was mentioned several times by Boxoffice in 1975.
