Previous Names: Metropolitan Theatre, Hermosa Theatre, Cove Twin Cinemas
Opened in 1923 as the Metropolitan Theatre. By June 1938 it was operated by Fox West Coast Theatres as the Hermosa Theatre. It was later twinned. It was renamed Bijou Twin Cinema on September 30, 1983.
After years of showing movies and name changes, it closed as the Bijou Theatre.
Now, however, the old Bijou Theatre building in Hermosa Beach, California has reopened for business – but without its once grand theatre.
Following a 3-2, 1999 vote by the Hermosa Beach City Council, the former Bijou Theatre’s floor was leveled and the theatre seats were removed to make way for retail use.
The building later housed an art gallery and office space. The art gallery closed and in 2013, the space became a bank.
