Bioscope sounds like something they do with a camera when you are having internal problems.

There are about a dozen theaters listed here on CT that had this name or a variant, including two called, rather redundantly, Theatorium Theater. The name appears to been in vogue for theaters built approximately 1905-1915.

I have always been fascinated by the number of very old theaters in Britain that were named Bioscope, which always sounded to me like a primitive medical instrument.
