The Cent Odeon opened on March 5, 1906. It was the second permanent cinema to open in Detroit, just two days after the Casino opened. The theater had been an arcade for six months before its opening as a nickelodeon.

The theater was renamed the Bijou in 1908, and the auditorium was moved from the second floor to the first floor in 1916.

Surviving the transitions to feature films, talkies and widescreen films, the Cent Odeon became the New Gayety in 1966. In 1968, it began a program of adult films and became the Cine X, closing in the mid-1970s.
