In the website for the Hoosier Theatre (Whiting), it mentions that the owner’s family used to own the Vogue Theatre, so I’m sure if he is contacted some info and possibly pictures will turn up.

It’s possible that this item from the July 5, 1930, issue of Exhibitors Herald World is about the Vogue Theater:

“EAST CHICAGO.— E. A. Varger & Company has plans by L. H. Warriner, 723 Washington street, Gary, Ind., for a two-story brick theatre to be located at Chicago and Forsythe streets. Cost estimated, $100,000.”
Forsythe Street was the former name of Indianapolis Boulevard.
