2 people favorited this theater
Located a block off of Hollywood Boulevard, the Bijou Adult Theatre was one of the numerous storefront adult cinemas that popped up in Hollywood during the 1970’s. Period photos depict a relatively small corner unit, with a surprisingly formal cinema marquee; reminiscent of the marquees seen on “classic” mainstream theatres. Programming was billed as “All color hits all nite”, triple features running continuously for a $3 admission price.
The theatre first appeared in independent listings circa 1975 and continued to regularly advertise throughout the remainder of the decade. With the arrival of home video in the 1980’s, the Bijou Theatre transitioned away from cinema operations and became a standard adult video/magazine store; replacing the formerly impressive marquee signage with a generic retail lightbox. The site operated as the Cahuenga Video Adult Book Store until it was closed in spring of 2019.
