Bijou Theatre Flyer Header

The Bijou Theatre was a small storefront cinema, located roughly a block from Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, which specialized in classic films. A 1971 Los Angeles Times piece mentions the Bijou Theatre kicking off a four month film festival with “The Jazz Singer” and the theatre continued to appear in the independent theatre listings through at least 1974. A flyer from the theatre advertised daily matinees and a $2.00 adult/$1.50 pricing policy.

In later listings, the Bijou Theatre began to occasionally advertise “all male revue” programming, before disappearing from the newspaper all together. Shortly after the Hollywood Boulevard venue vanished, another Bijou Theatre, located on Cahuenga Boulevard, appeared in newspaper listings, featuring strictly adult films. Whether the theatre had relocated, or the name was merely utilized by a different operator, is unknown.

I’m guessing the theatre was located on the front left side of what is now the Author Services Building (formerly The Hollywood Savings & Loan Building and one time home to The Hollywood Museum), near the former church (now a Scientology education center). In that area, there are currently three street side display windows which look as if they may have been storefronts at one time. The current facility contains a live performance theatre, but I’m not sure where it’s located in the building/if it has any relation to the one time cinema.
