3444 Broadway was the address given for a house called the Broadmour Theatre, mentioned in the February 2, 1924, issue of The Reel Journal. The item said that operator A. M. Eisner had closed the Broadmour Theatre for a few days to install a new heating plant.

The Broadmour Theatre was also mentioned in the November 19, 1913, issue of The Moving Picture World.

Also, it’s obvious from Street View that the Vogue has been demolished. The midcentury modern building now on the site looks to date from the 1950s.

Iliad Amusement Company opened the Broadmour Theatre on November 14, 1912 with “The Lion Tamer’s Revenge.” Joseph H. Gilday was in charge of both it and the Iliad Theatre on Troost Avenue. Two years later, Dominick Donnici took on the venue. The Broadmour made the transition to sound in late 1929 going dark on May 3, 1930.

Under new management, the theatre relaunched as the New Broadmour on March 29, 1932. That was short-lived and the theatre returned to closed and offered for sale in 1933. The theatre re-emerged very briefly as the LaSalle Theatre. The theatre was redesigned to the plans of architect James F. Terney in 1938 relaunching as the Vogue Theatre on April 17, 1938. It rebranded as the Vogue Art Theatre in 1952. It closed as the Vogue Art Theatre with “War and Peace” in 1956 then transitioned back to discount double feature sub-runs as the Vogue Theatre. It closed on February 2, 1957 with Humphrey Bogart in “Oklahoma Kid” and George Montgomery in “Huk!”

The venue reopened one final time as the Vogue Theatre in October of 1959 closing for good on February 28, 1960 with Gary Cooper in “They Came to Codura” and Jane Wyman in “Holiday for Lovers.”
