Located in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex. The Bijou Electric Empire was opened in June 1911. It was built as a garage behind the old shipyard. It was a wooden building with a corrugated -iron roof and an earth floor.

By 1925 it was operated by Sussex Picturdrome who also operated the Duke of York’s Cinema in Brighton and the Bijou Electric Empire was re-named Duke of York’s Cinema. It was closed on 5th August 1931 when it was completely destroyed by fire.

In 2020 a building housing Domino’s Pizza now stands on the site.
