One of the earliest movie houses to open in the Loop, the Bijou Dream, near the larger and more ornate Orpheum Theater, opened in 1905, located on South State Street at the intersection of Adams Street.
The Bijou Dream Theater was one of a handful of Loop movie houses theat made up the early Jones, Linick, and Schaefer circuit (which also included, among others, the Orpheum Theater, the Rialto Theater and the Randolph Theater). The Bijou Dream Theater was fairly short-lived. The theater was sold to a candy company in 1921 for over $200,000, and converted into a retail store.
Razed decades ago, a modern mixed-use retail and office building stands on the site today.
