The Bijou Theatre was opened in 1975. It was renamed City Lights Cinema and reopened May 20, 1977. It was a small art house independent in Santa Fe, NM. It was located in a small shopping center between a bakery and a video store. It closed up around 1986. It returned to it’s retail roots and is a Domino’s Pizza last time I noticed.

I worked at this little theater for ~3 years when I was a teenager. It was a great experience and I believe I developed my film taste with all of the cult, foreign, neglected, and classic movies I saw there. I spent a little time a the El Paseo too, but this was the place where I learned manual change-overs, arc carbon lamphouses, and screen masking.

Here’s a bio for Bill Hill the guy that owned and ran the place:
