This theater was definitely in the SE corner building at the intersection of Lake Dr, Wealthy and Norwood SE. IRC the front entrance faced Hampton SE east of this intersection. My Not Right friends and I would have Not Right Excursions to this theater and witnessed the 'First' run viewings of Rocky Horror Picture Show (before the cult rituals were manifested) and David Lynch's newly released Eraserhead in 1977-78. I lived in the Hill area at the time. Breakfast Just Breakfast (later Wolfgang's) was across the street from the theater's building. The Bijou Theater was showing mostly indie and art films during this period.
