The curtains were raised in 1941 at the Vogue Theatre in Vancouver - originally as a movie house and stage
venue under the Odeon movie chain. Designed by architects Kaplan & Sprachman, the Vogue's first movie shown was I See
Ice, a 1938 hockey-themed romantic comedy. And in later years, it hosted now cult-classic flicks like the coveted Star Wars
and Jaws. Developers purchased the Vogue Theatre in 1987, and it sat unused for three years.
In 1992, the Vogue Theatre
evolved into one of the primary rock venues in Vancouver, hosting live music by dynamic and talented artists like Cat Power,
PJ Harvey, Elvis Costello and Nelly Furtado.
As one of the last standing theaters from the renowned Theatre Row, the
Vogue Theatre continues in the tradition of hosting must-see events - in excess of 200 events.
