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.”
