The Bijou was founded by Michael Lockwood, a life-long film fan who had been very active in the North West, in particular with the Preston Cine Society. His dream of operating a cinema was finally realised when he acquired the building that eventually became the Bijou. Sadly, however, he passed away in January 2021 so, with the enforced closure during 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he hardly saw his cherished project in action.

The Bijou is operated as a not-for-profit Community Interest Company and staffed by a very enthusiastic band of volunteers. They made me very welcome when I visited, on Tuesday 26th October 2021, for a matinee screening of the silent horror classic “Nosferatu” (1921).
