It was remodeled in 1938 with plans designed by the architectural firm Rule, Wynn, Rule and reopened at the Rialto Theatre. The Bijou theatre closed around 1987.
This collection consists of correspondence, blueprints, design proposals, reports, and a wide variety of records generated by the City of Edmonton and the XI Commonwealth Games Canada (1978) Foundation. The Foundation records, which make up over fifty percent of the collection, have been organized according to an existing file index and numbering system.
The collection has been divided into the following four series. Wherever possible this division was done with respect to the original order of the records. The series are as follows:
Series 1: City of Edmonton records
Series 2: XI Commonwealth Games Canada (1978) Foundation records
Series 3: Festival '78 records
Series 4: Publications and Manuals
