Bijou Theatre: Knoxville’s most haunted


WE WANT TO TAKE YOU TO THE THIRD OLDEST BUILDING IN KNOXVILLE…..AND WHAT SOME SAY MAY POSSIBLY BE THE MOST HAUNTED IN THE CITY…. SIT DOWN….RELAX IF YOU CAN….AS WE TAKE YOU INSIDE THE BIJOU THEATER…. NATS OF CREEKY WALKING…. TRACK: THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE HAVE WALKED THESE FLOORS FOR MORE THAN 200 YEARS…. SOT: :54 WITH HISTORY…. I GUESS COMES HAUNTINGS AND RESIDUAL SPIRITS AND ENERGIES.. TRACK: IF WALLS COULD TALK….YOU WOULD HEAR STORIES OF PEOPLE WHO LIVED….AND DIED HERE WHEN IT WAS A HOTEL….A BROTHEL —-EVEN A CIVIL WAR HOSPITAL…. 2:30 IT DID TREAT BOTH SIDES OF THE WAR…SO SADLY A LOT OF PEOPLE TOOK THEIR LAST BREATHS…IN THIS BUILDING …ON THIS FLOOR AND IN THESE WALLLS. TRACK: COURTNEY BERGMEIER WITH THE BIJOU—-SAYS ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS PEOPLE TO DIE HERE WAS GENERAL WILLIAM SANDERS. HIS STORY IS COMMEMORATED ON THIS PLAQUE…..BUT SOME MIGHT SAY—–HIS STORY IS FAR FROM OVER….. 3;24 PEOPLE SAY THAT THEY CATCH GLIMPSES ON A SOLDIER…AND THE GLIMMER OF BUTTONS AND AROUND THE CORNER OF HIS EYES SO WE HAVE TO ASSUME THAT IS GENERAL SANDERS KEEPING AN EYE ON THINGS…. LIGHTS FLICKER…. TRACK: AND SEEMS LIKE GENERAL SANDERS MAY NOT BE ALONE…..A PARANORMAL INVESTIGATIVE TEAM DEEMED THE WOMEN’S RESTROOM OFF THE GALLERY ON THE 2ND FLOOR—AS THE MOST HAUNTED PLACE IN THE BUILDING…..AND SOME WORKERS TEND AGREE…. 1:18 I WAS WEARING A SWEATER OR CARDIGAN AND AS I WAS WALKING IN…I FELT 2 DISTINCT TUGS ON MY SWEATER…. 1:25 I WAS HERE BY MYSELF AND I WAS NEW…SO I TRIED TO CONVINCE MYSELF IT WAS ALL IN MY HEAD…. 2:05..WE HAVE A THEORY MAYBE IT WAS A CHILD OR SOMEONE TRYING TO GET OUR ATTENTION. TRACK: AND APPARENTLY THE STAGE AREA AT THE BIJOU IS NOT OFF LIMITS….AN OVERNIGHT SECURITY GUARD….TOLD WORKERS HERE….THE SPIRITS SEEM OVER ACTIVE AT NIGHT…. 15:05 HE HEARD FOOTSTEPS ALL NIGHT LONG WALKING ALONG THE RAFTERS AND CATWALK ABOVE THE STAGE… TRACK: EVEN PERFORMERS….HA VE LEFT THE BIJOU WITH SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT MOVEMENT IN A CLOSED OFF BALCONY….THAT HASN’T BEEN USED IN DECADES…. 13:01 HE CAME OUT TO ME AND SAID IS SOMEONE ELSE IN THERE…NOPE—I JUST GOT HERE…AND HE SAID REALLY—I HEARD SOMEONE COUGHING…AND COUGHING AND TALKING UP HIGH IN BACK OF THEATER….AND I SAID IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU JUST ENCOUNTERED THE BIJOU GHOST…. SU: AND WHILE—-WE KNOW—-NOT EVERYONE IS A BELIEVER IN SPIRITS….IT’S CLEAR THAT SOME PRETTY EERIE THINGS HAPPEN HERE AT THE BIJOU….AND MAYBE—–JUST MAYBE IF YOU SPEND ENOUGH TIME HERE…..YOU MIGHT EXPERIENCE SOMETHING TOO…… 18:46 I THINK IT IS ONLY NATURAL THAT THERE IS AN ENERGY THAT EXISTS HERE…AND THAT PEOPLE ARE DRAWN BACK TO THIS PLACE.. KRISTIN: AND SPEAKING OF THAT ENERGY,,,,,WE TRIED TO GET A READ ON IT BY USING A FEW DIFFERENT GHOST DETECTING APPS……MOST OF THEM OUT THERE SAY THEY CAN READ ENERGY…OR THE ELECTRO-MAGNETIC FIELD IN A ROOM….JUST BY USING YOUR PHONE….. WE DID NOT FIND AND PEAKS IN ENERGY FOR THE SHORT TIME WE TRIED IT OUT…..BUT IF YOU WANT TO TRY FOR YOUR SELF….WE HAVE A LINK TO SOME OF THE TOP RATED APPS THAT CAN HELP—-ON OUR WEBSITE WATE.COM.
