What Would You Do With the Old Bijou Theatre?
The last time anyone saw a movie at the old Bijou Theatre on Main Street in Fairhaven was in 2004. The theater, along with 3 storefronts and 12 apartment units are for sale.
The Bijou Theatre programed independent and foreign films that tended not to be shown on the New Bedford screens as well as hand-picked popular releases.
The theatre began its life in 1923 as the American Theatre, then became known afterwards as the Keith, the New Keith, and the Oxford Cinema. It had been the Bijou since 1990 when it opened with “Ghost”. The Bijou closed in 2004.
