“The building permit to renovate the Vogue Theater has been issued by the City of Chula Vista, giving the green light to bringing the currently dormant historical building back to life. Janice Kluth, the senior project coordinator for Chula Vista, this week confirmed that Amorphica Design Research Office received the permit to start construction on February 13.

It was also the venue for official mayoral debates during some of those years.”
