1909: THE NEW BIJOU OPENS APRIL 17, 1909
Did you know that there was another Bijou theater before this Chambersburg Bijou. Back in the early 20th century another Bijou was located on North Broad near Perry Street. It is complete speculation on my part, but I would bet that the old Garden Theater took up that spot.when the theater closed. The North Broad Street Bijou was a vaudeville theater. Stay tuned. More to come on Trenton's interesting theater history. Look for future posts featuring the "Double B"theater the Nicolette, and others that repose in the deep dark recesses of my "THEATERS-TRENTON" folder.
