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.
In 1976, Howard Coleman created the Lakeside Theaters by remodeling an
existing building. The theater originally showed first-run films, but
switched to sub-run in about 1985. The theater closed on 9 June 2000
because of "declining attendance and competition from the chain movie
theaters" with stadium seating and digital sound. The building, owned
by Kier Corp., was likely to be converted to retail.
