    After The Red Shoes was rejected by the main American distributors as being too "artsy" it was shown at the Bijou Theatre off Broadway and it was so successful there that they continued to screen it for about a year. After they saw how successful it was with audiences the major distributors picked it up and toured it around the States. From there it's reputation continued to grow and grow.

    I noticed the 2pm showing time for the premiere, and wondered if there would be a specialist clientele. As a poster design 'devotee' I'm inclined to believe that this illustration here would have been for the Bijou (exclusive name there) individually.

    It says "All seats reserved" which I take to mean that the premiere screening at 2:30 was fully booked.
    They also advertise seats for the 2:30 & 8:30 each day with additional screenings at 5;30 at weekends and at 11:30 on Saturday evenings. And they kept that up for about a year!! That's a LOT of screenings

    The Bijou was the only place screening it for that first year

    He said in a radio interview that it (the film) was his introduction to ballet.
