This was the second Bijou Theatre to open in Philadelphia, and was the first of two B.F. Keith’s vaudeville theatres to open in the city. Keith’s Bijou Theatre was opened November 4, 1889, and it was located at the northeast corner of N. 8th Street and Race Street. On December 25, 1895, Keith’s Bijou Theatre showed the first ever films in Philadelphia. From 1896 films became part of the vaudeville program. In 1928 and 1929 the Bijou Theatre had converted to full time cinema use. It soon went back to live theatre, presenting burlesque, and was closed in 1967 and demolished May 25, 1967.
