According to a December 1913 article in the NY Times, the Bijou Theatre was built in 1876 and opened as the Brighton Theatre. Originally built as a playhouse, the Bijou Theatre was later used for motion pictures. The Bijou Theatre was sold in January of 1915 to a construction company and the building was demolished shortly afterwards.
