The Vernal Amusement and Improvement Company opened the Vogue Theatre on 29 December 1916, with Mary Pickford starring in Poor Little Peppina. The Vogue was described as “the most modern moving picture show house in the Basin,” boasting features “right up to the minute.” The 425-seat theater had a balcony and a 17-instrument Wurlizter Plan Orchestra organ. The original name intended for the theater was “Princess,” but was changed to the “Vogue” after the management held a contest to find “the most catching name, with the least number of letters.” The Vogue Theatre closed in 1960 and was remodeled for use as the Vernal Drug Company.
The Martin Dalton Social Hall was built in the middle of Circleville on property donated to the Circleville Amusement Company by Taylor Whittaker in 1907. After the building was damaged by fire in November 1918, events were held in the town's church until a new high school with an auditorium was built in 1921.1
