Built near the end of the Art Deco period, the Rogue Theatre is an excellent and well preserved example of the style.
Art Deco theater designers used rounded corners, triple striped decorative elements and black decoration. The look was sleek, evoking technology and speed. Art Deco emphasized modern glossy materials, smooth seamless surfaces, finned and bowed cinema facades and aerodynamic lines.

After a brief closure in 1999, the Rogue Theatre reopened in 2000 as a regional nonprofit performing arts center.
