The Bijou charged the standard 10 cents or 20 cents for admission (about $2.50 and $5.00 respectively in today’s dollars) and changed programs every Sunday and Thursday.
In 1910 the Bijou acquired films from Amalgamated Film Exchange, and the manager was asked to advertise that he received the films from this Portland based company. Instead of mentioning it in a regular advertisement the manager at the time, A, L. Midgley, decided to put the entire letter in several March publications of the local newspaper. The Amalgamated Film Exchange boasted that they had films “approved by the board of censors.” If a theater was found to be showing unapproved films, or the uncensored versions of films, it could be fined.
Unfortunately, Mr. Fluhart proved to be a scoundrel, and he failed to do his promised renovations. He skipped town in July 1910, leaving the Bijou "a dark place on theatre row." The Medford Mail Tribune soon started running rental ads for the theater space.
By August an ad appeared for The Passion Play along with a musical program at the Bijou, but that was the last mention of the Bijou in the local paper.
