The Bijou, located at 56 Pleasant Street, was purchased from Howard Shaw by Leon Bolduc in October 1919. In 1931 he constructed what is referred to as the Bolduc Block which included the New Conway Theatre which became the Majestic. He also operated the nearby North Conway Theatre and the former Wiley’s Hall in Lovell, ME.

In 1927 a new marquee was installed on the Bijou. In 1929 it screened the first “talkie” in Conway, “The Broadway Melody”.

Bolduc also managed long lost theatres in Silver Lake, Tamworth, Chocorua and Jackson, New Hampshire. He was actually known to speed from theatre to theatre with film reels when there were shared presentations.
