From the partial ruin of the old Grand Theatre on Victoria Avenue a new modern movie theatre has been created-the Vogue.
This attractivelyappointed theatre was opened to the public on Tuesday evening by the new owner, Joe Altomare, formely from Natal, who has spent a large sum of money on renovating the old property to provide additional entertainment for Fernie and district theatre go-ers.
Latest sound equipement has been installed and the projection room is one of the finest in Western Canada.
Some Criticism has been levelled against the proposed showing of the “Outlaw”. but many who have seen it have given it a clean bill of health.
