This theatre was around the corner from the Stanford Theatre. I remember David Cooper, who worked for Walter Reade, opened this theatre as a single screen.

The building which housed the Bijou still stands, converted to restaurant and retail use.

I only attended this theater once, in 1986 or 7, for a showing of “‘Round Midnight.” The Bijou closed not long after.

I remember a simple auditorium with raked seating and blue soundfold on the walls. My only other memory is the alluring (to my collegiate-age eyes) Goth/Punk women who worked the box office and concession counter.

Here is the page from the Gordon Biersch site. Function should be bar/restaurant. Status should be closed.
