Bijou Movie Theater

This wonderful little theater was constructed in 1975, opening in December 1975 as the Odeum Theatre, after the towns' Strand Theatre located on 1st Avenue burned down. Their first show was, appropriately, “The Towering Inferno”.

It is currently owned by Jerry and Cheryl Sheehy of Lisbon, Iowa. The Sheehy’s two kids help customers carry their concessions to their chairs and clean between shows.

The official spelling is “Mount Vernon”.

Cornell College had two “movie theaters” circa 1988: The main stage in the then-decrepit Armstrong Hall, and a small theater in the basement of Cole Library, accessible from the back of the library.
