The Vogue Theatre, located at the intersection of Colonial and Mills in Orlando’s Colonialtown neighborhood, was independently operated from its opening on December 25, 1940, right after the American involvement in World War II. The opening movie was Priscilla Lane in “Four Mothers”. 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-1970’s, a gas station was built on the site. A pharmacy currently occupies the space.
