The Bijou Cinemas opened on the 3rd of June 1976 with “The Ode To Billy Joe” and “Whale of A Tale”. It was only 4 screens at the time, the next summer we opened screens 5 & 6, 7 & 8 were added around 1984. I was projectionist there from opening until 1981, I returned in 1991 as the GM to replace my Father in law, Paul Cook, who semi retired. It was closed and demolished June 3, 2001, exactly 25 years to the day that it opened. Mr.Cook was there for all of the 25 years.
