Previous Names: Gem Theatre
The Gem Theatre was opened on July 3, 1902. It was renamed Bijou Theatre on March 28, 1910. This was a very popular movie theatre with students like us at the University of Maine in the late-1950’s-early-1960’s. We were able to sit in the balcony on a section in the first row that jutted out of the balcony. I saw many first run movies during that time at the Bijou Theatre. Later on, I visited Bangor and saw that it has fallen prey to “urban renewal” having been demolished in 1973.
