News About This Theater
Designed by noted theatre architect S. Charles Lee, the Vogue Theatre opened on July 9, 1935 with Ivor Novello in “The Phantom Fiend” (a talkie version of Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Lodger”). It had a seating capacity of 897, all on one floor. The Vogue Theatre was run by Fox West Coast Theatres from July 10, 1945 and was modernised in July 1959 to the plans of architects J. Walter Bantou & J. Arthur Drielsma. Mann Theatres took over in the early-1990’s.
One of the better mid-sized theatres on Hollywood Boulevard, the theatre is located on Hollywood Boulevard & N. Las Palmas Avenue, across the next block from the Egyptian Theatre.
Legend has it this theatre is haunted by a former projectionist, named Fritz, who once worked at the theatre.
The Vogue Theatre closed in around 1995 and for a short time was used as a theatre for psychic performances. It then had occasional use as a film location space. In December 2001, the theatre fittings were stripped out and sold off.
In 2009, the building was fitted out as live performance space named the Supper Club, which caters for an adult audience. It was closed October 30, 2015. By spring of 2018 it was operating as a museum displaying Hollywood artefacts. By fall of 2021 it was the Vogue Multicultural Museum.
