The Historic Vogue Theatre of Manistee
Bringing the biggest and best films to Manistee! The Vogue Theatre was built in 1938 and was designed in the dramatic art deco style of the 1920’s. The Vogue had last operated regularly in the fall of 2005 before closing for good…or so everyone thought. In 2010, a feasibility study concluded that the building was structurally sound and should be restored as a Theatre to meet market demands, particularly since there were no movie theaters in Manistee County. The capital campaign began in 2011, the contractor was selected in 2012 and the rehabilitation project began in October of that year. The revitalization of the Vogue is a grassroots effort under the direction of the Historic Vogue Theatre of Manistee (HVTM), a non-profit organization formed to spearhead the project. To date, well over 500 people from all walks of life have volunteered their time and talents to make this project a reality. The Vogue Theatre reopened in late 2013 with two movie screens.
