I believe this theatre opened in the 1930’s with live plays. In the 1960’s it was turned into the Jewel Theatre which played all male films when they left the Adonis. In the 1980’s it was re-named the Bijou and continued to play male XXX films. In 1988 the city closed it down.
It was remodeled and re-named the Cinema Village Third Avenue with the revival format moving here when the owner of the Cinema Village tried to make that an X house (with the name Cinema 12). That lasted less than three months and the original Cinema Village returned with independant films for a short time using the Cinema 12 name and then Cinema Village.
This theatre then changed it’s name back to the Bijou Cinema and switched to a first run format opening with “War of the Roses”. By 1992 with all the competition from the new Loews Village and Village East, the theatre quietly went back to adult films.
