SEATING CAPACITY: 600
Built as a legitimate theatre. In 1935, it became New York's first all-cartoon cinema when the building was used as cinema and theatre in a rotating schedule. It was closed from 1937 to 1943.
The Astor Theatre next door was renovated in 1959 and the Bijou gave up some of its space to that building.
In 1962, it showed art films, then Japanese filme, and soon returned to occasional legitimate use.
