Bijou Theater

This theater is in Cold Spring, New York, at the end of Main Street near the train station, along the Hudson River, off Route 301/9D. When you approach it on the busy pedestrian thoroughfare, you see a black vertical sign saying “Bijou”.

Located in a small, two-story building, the top floor was stucco with some small windows, then a red trim and all stonework on the bottom floor.

It is now a gallery/antique store and you can see the bathrooms on the left and right side and what was once the old ticket booth. The lobby has a tin ceiling with very small tiles and as you get to the auditorium, the tin ceiling has all large tiles.

The man working had a Bijou name tag and was happy about my inquiries. He shared what he knew and showed me an old news article on the wall and the last old playbill under glass on talking about “Benji”.

He called his boss on the phone and he talked to me right there! The man was very forthcoming and said the building was the theatre first, then a dance/exercise studio for ten years, then a jewelry store for another ten and for the last ten years the current business.
