The Bijou opened in 1908.

“The career of E. V. Richards, Jr., mentioned above, intertwined with that of the Saengers
and the Ehrlichs. Richards came to Shreveport in 1908 and with a partner purchased the Musee
Theatre at 625 Milam. Later that same year, they established the Bijou Theatre on Texas Street.
From relative obscurity, Richards went on to become President of Saenger Theatres, Inc., Saenger-
Ehrlich Enterprises, Inc., and Paramount-Richards Theatres, Inc., his own chain. He also was one of the organizers of First National Pictures (later bought out by Warner Brothers), one of the pioneer motion picture studios in Hollywood, California.” Source

By 1935 the Bijou address had become the home of Phelps Shoes.
