the bijou

The Bijou Theatre in Observatory is one of the few remaining art deco cinemas. This is another magnificent example of William Hood GRANT’s architectural design and was opened as a cinema in 1941. It ceased being operational as a cinema before the 1995 explosion and fire which ravaged much of the building. At the time it was used as a plastics factory and is currently home to a blacksmith.
