I found conflicting information on the Bijou theater in Wilmington, NC. It appears that the Bijou opened in 1904 using a tent for the theater. What appears to be a building in a 1906 photo is actually an entrance built in front of the tent making it appear to be a theater building from the front. Around 1912 a permanent building replaced the tent.
In the 1940’s, the Bijou Theater was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. thru their subsidairy H.F. Kincey. Only one source gave a closing date and that was 1956.
