The Lee Theatre was almost entirely demolished to make way for its successor,the Vogue Theatre, in 1940. The article about the new house in the January 11, 1941, issue of Motion Picture Herald said that only one wall of the original theater, and that one shared as a common wall with an adjoining building, was retained in the rebuilding. The Lee was 30x70 feet and seated 340, while the new Vogue was 45x140 feet and seated 540. Larry Larsen was the architect for the rebuilding.
