An exhibit at the Hermosa Beach Museum, “Going to the Movies: The Story of the Bijou Theater,” hosted by the Hermosa Beach Historical Society, opened March 5 at the Hermosa Beach Museum. The exhibit traces the history of the Metropolitan Theatre through its decades as a movie theater, until its closing as the Bijou Theater.
