Deep in Vogue: Louisville’s Treasured Cinema
October 12 – 28
For over 20 years, the Vogue Theater was Louisville’s celebrated arthouse cinema with a plethora of screenings of classic Hollywood fare, foreign films, wild cult films, children’s matinees, American independent releases, and the ever-popular The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The cinema in St. Matthews packed houses and gave an informal film education to the region.
This fall marks the 20th anniversary since its closing and this series celebrates beloved films that played at the Vogue. In addition, there will be a display of ephemera from the Vogue preserved by former Vogue staff members and local cinema archivist David Conover.
