BIJOU (Bijou Talkie Palace)

In the hometown of the Gooks, television did not exist, and radio is seldom, if ever, mentioned, The citizens entertained themselves with reading, visiting back and forth, watching the fat men play handball down at the YMCA, listening to the Sewage Disposal Workers' Band, and thinking. . .thoughts. But when the townspeople wanted to escape the four walls of their daily lives, they could visit the town's movie house. The Bijou (pronounced BYE-joe) offered a continual cycle of adventure and romance, as enacted by those reliable stars Gloria Golden and Four Fisted Frank Fuddleman.

The patrons, however, was even more interesting than the events on screen. The Bijou has been the scene for tragedy (such as the time Blue Tooth Johnson threw the theater into consternation when he fell out of a broken seat) to triumph (as when Smelly Clark first publicly escorted his lady friend.) The Bijou may not have been a movie palace, but its silver shadows and red-blooded audience made it a place of perpetual wonder. - Sarah Cole
