Streetview is wrong. Needs to move up two blocks and turn the other way. Building must still be there. One of the storefronts south of the Sullivan hardware building.

There were plans to remodel the Bijou Theatre in 1918, according to this item in the May 4 issue of The Moving Picture World:

“ANDERSON, S. C. — Bijou theater has plans by Casey & Fant for improvements to theater to include removal of second balcony, redecoration of interior, making screen fourteen feet square, installing ventilating and heating systems and indirect lighting.”
Joseph Huntley Casey and Charles William Fant Sr. were Anderson’s leading architects of the period.

Does anyone know any more information about the Imperial and other early Anderson theatres? I’m researching Anderson’s early cinema.
