Welcome to the Bijou Theater and Sex Club, the oldest gay porn theater in the U.S.
The Bijou takes you to those free sexual days of the 1970's and 1980's. Once you enter the theater, any sexual fantasies that you might have in clothes or without clothes (lockers are available), you can perform. Cruise the theater, the second floor play area with its gloryhole booths, dungeon (called the Mineshaft) with slings and bondage crosses, tv room, dark encounter areas, bathrooms, and in the warm days of summer the Bijou Gardens for an outdoor sexual experience. The sexual experience at the Bijou is enhanced by fabulous music. Remember this: the Bijou is not pretty, the Bijou is all about sex where nothing is off limits.

It was in January of 1970 that the Bijou Theater opened its doors on the first floor of a four story Victorian building in Old Town Chicago. The first film that played on its screen was Ricard Nixon’s Checkered Speech, named after the Nixon dog Checkers; Why Richard Nixon’s Checkered Speech? Because if the theater would have opened with a gay porn movie, it would have had its new license to operate revoked. After six weeks of Richard Nixon, a gay porn film was put up on the screen and the Bijou never looked back.- Steven Toushin
