Located in the west Sydney suburb of Balmain. The National Theatre was opened as a live theatre/music hall in January 1912. Eventually cinema use came and it was taken over by Hoyts Theatres chain in the late-1920’s, and was renamed Hoyts Balmain Theatre. Remodeled in 1936, in an Art Deco Style.

It was closed in 1964 and became an auction house. Re-opened as an independent Bijou Cinema in 1974, and went back to live theatre with some cinema use until 1980.

In the late-1990’s, it was converted into apartments, known as ‘The Bijou’.
