Bijou Theatre
Ogden, Utah

The Bijou Theatre, later named The Odeon, may not have been open for much more than a year.  Manager De Mott showed pictures using a “Cameraphone” on a cloth screen, a method criticized by his successors as “a failure as an attraction.”  Higginbotham and Platt replaced the cloth screen with a fine plaster wall, “upon which the pictures will appear to much better effect.”

Shortly after Lewiston was settled a theatrical group was formed.  In 1884 the people of Lewiston built the Lewiston Opera House.  It was used for motion pictures, dances, dramatic productions, basketball games, and roller skating before it was destroyed by fire in 1929.
