My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the Black Jacket Symphony concert at the Bijou Theater recently. I love the size of the Bijou. Not a bad seat in the house. Very intimate. Only concern is the limited restroom facilities. We already have our tickets for the new Black Jacket Symphony show in October. Can't wait to return to the Bijou.... More

What a great piece of history. I have been going to the Bijou since I was a kid. It was even closed for a long time before they reopened it! It is very small but that just adds to the greatness! You feel like you are apart of the performance! There is a parking lot right next to the theater.... More

The Bijou Theater is about half the size of the Tennessee Theater, but just as nice of a venue. The sound is great. We saw really enjoy seeing the WDVX Bluegrass shows at the Bijou.

This theater is in a great area - safe and parking is near. I love the vintage feel of this theater; and the seats closer to the front are better even though it is a smaller venue.

Probably the best concert hall for sound in town. Artists remark on how great the acoustics are. It's also one of the most intimate place to see a show in K-Town. Given my druthers, this would be my first choice to see a band or a performer. I look for excuses to see concerts at the Bijou. I'm glad they... More

This venue might be old, but the architecture is absolutely beautiful! Not to mention it's essentially impossible to get a bad seat. I definitely recommend it for a good show.

Knoxville is blessed to have the Bijou as little sister to the Tennessee Theater a block north. Both are beautifully restored old theaters that make any event seem special. I was attending the Wild and Scenic film festival most recently, but have attended other shows and even a wedding here.
