The architect was S. Charles Lee. The facade was/is similar to Lee’s Tower Theatre in Compton, now gone.

The Vogue was a wonderful theater. Very attractive and played first rate films. I saw my first 3d Movie “The House of Wax” there. I remember the theater well.
On Saturday mornings, time was spent at the old Rio theater on Park St. It seemed as though only B movies were shown there. Many Sat. mornings were spent there with the old Serials/Adventure(Jungle Jim/Tarzan etc.) and a load of Cartoons/and the 3 stooges being shown from early morn til late afternoon. It was wonderful then.
