The Vogue Theatre

The Vogue Theatre
918 GRANVILLE ST

Opened in 1941, the sensational Vogue Theatre was designed by award winning architects Kaplan & Sprachman.  Famous for superb acoustics and intimate atmosphere, the Vogue, along with her 62-foot neon sign have become a Vancouver landmark. The geometrical symmetry of the facade paired with the curving, fluid forms of the interior embody an architectural aesthetic most commonly described as “Art Deco”.  Designed as a dual-purpose theatre to showcase both live performances and movies, the Vogue has been a preferred venue for performers, filmmakers, and audiences alike for nearly 70 years.  Bright lights, glamorous decor, and streamlined forms are features which make the Vogue a magnificent example of Art Deco style.  Built by the Odeon chain in 1941, the theatre was unusual in its ability to accommodate both movies and live shows.  The crisp geometric lines of the facade contrast effectively with the fluid interior.  The auditorium's superb acoustics are enhanced by smooth curving walls and by the tiered ceiling that conceals a dramatic lighting system.  With its towering neon sign, the Vogue is prominent landmark of Vancouver's theatre district
