The Bijou Theatre was opened in 1909 as a part of the already existing Lamar house (built in 1817) and still stays true to its classic architecture, acoustics and ‘small-theatre, big feel’ ambience.
The theatre has special seating which are immersive and is loved especially for music concerts and is an experience in itself as you breathe in the history of the city while seeing its modern, performing-arts pulse come to life.

Bijou Theatre Reviews & Ratings
I know a lot of stuff happens here but definitely get your groove on at this place. Definitely try and become a friend of the bijou. The performances here are amazing, I definitely think they should advertise more but I'm sure that has something to do with the budget but either way if you've never been to an event here at least try one time this year and let that be your goal or even your 20/20 resolution! You go out there and support local awesomeness. The staff here or beyond next level! Go have an experience, go try something new, go be a friend of the bijou!
Loved watching Carpetbag Theatre take the stage in Red Summer. Powerful, historical and so entertaining. The Bijou is a wonderful venue. I've been fortunate to visit several times!
The Bijou is one of the jewels in Knoxville's crown. It is a wonderful place to hear music. One can park in a lot right next to the Bijou or, with a bit of healthy walking, park in State Street garage which has been renovated and is much safer with bright lights among other things needed for a good parking garage. Free after six and on weekends.
I saw a musical called "Bright Star" presented by The Word Players. It was a terrific show, very professional caliber. Highly recommend the show, suitable for all ages. Beautiful, touching story with bluegrass mountain flavored songs. The Bijou is beautiful and the staff are great as they always are.
I love going to the Bijou Theatre. My husband and I go see shows held at it often. Last weekend we went there and saw Henry Cho! We also saw him there last year for his show! The staff here is incredible! Everyone is super pleasant and helpful including the security screeners at the doors. They make entering fast and efficient especially for the large amount of people at any given show! The Bijou is nice and clean always, as are the bathrooms! The seats here are comfortable. The view from any seat in the house is great! The sound in the theater is great also! They also have a concession stand for drinks.
