J. M. B., Moving Picture World, August 13, 1910:
“The marble ticket office in front of the Bijou, Cincinnati, is of simple but rich design, with fancy brass grille work and surmounted by a dome of fine open metal work. The balcony, with its green (natural) plants and flowers in bloom, calls for much admiration and gives an atmosphere of freshness to the place.
Here again I noted a total absence of ugly loose posters. The posters are framed, even the advance poster of the ‘Roosevelt’s Return‘ film is framed and placed on a neat easel.”
