THE VOGUE CINEMA
1946

In 1941 M.E.Walker purchased this site which had lain vacant since the fire of 1912. Designed by architect R.A. Frechet of Moncton, the Vogue Cinema was built in 1946, and has remained in operation ever since. As well as showing movies it has been the venue for a variety of community events, and in the winter months hosts the Sackville Film Society.

The Art Deco style building has a brick facade featuring a central block and two wings, with recessed vertical decoration and stepped-up brickwork. The central ticket booth is flanked by two recessed entrance doors with eyebrow windows and metal kick panels. The flat roof has a false brick fašade with slightly raised pitch in centre.

This building is within the Town of Sackville Municipal Heritage Conservation Area A.
