News About This Theater
Opened on April 13, 1941 with George Formby in “I See Ice”. This first-run movie house had 1,347-seats and was designed in an Art Moderne style. The Vogue Theatre was taken over by Odeon Theatres during construction. Seating was provided in orchestra and balcony levels. On the splay-walls beside the proscenium were large painted murals. Troughs across the ceiling provided concealed lighting for the auditorium.
It now serves as a popular venue for performing arts, including concerts and Broadway shows, and is known for its superb acoustics and intimate atmosphere.
A 1998 restoration project has brought back the Vogue Theatre’s original appearance, as well as state-of-the-art light and sound systems being installed.
The Vogue Theatre is also home to the Vancouver International Jazz Festival and also the Vancouver International Film Festival. By 2017 the projectors had been removed from the booth and that room had been converted into office space.
The theatre is a Heritage Building of the City of Vancouver.
