A Hidden Gem

Tired of big box theatres that don't play the movies you really want to see? Then this is the place.

Beautiful building with a gorgeous Mediterranean architecture. They host great movies, especially the international ones. Nice little pantry shop for snacks is inside the building. The bathrooms are clean.

Both Bijou Cinemas get all of the independent films that so many small cities miss out on. These small theaters have an old time feel to them, reminiscent of days gone by. We go out of our way to avoid the huge "corporate" theaters and these two theaters are the perfect answer.

I'm pleased that the Bijou has opened a new theater in the center of town on Broadway near Willamette. Its clean and just the right size and close to many restaurants in the area....including the new ice cream store. This was my 3rd trip since they opened.

The chairs may not be the most comfortable but the movie selections are often wonderful and the friendly staff and unique theater make it a great experience.

There is an adjoining restaurant, where you can purchase food and beverages to take into the theater. The theaters are smaller and the same Bijou atmosphere is present in the lobby.

There are two Bijou theaters. One is in an old church, and one is downtown in a newer building. Both, however, are small intimate theaters, with old time popcorn, other food choices, and terrifically cheap prices (by Chicago standards, anyway). The people working there are knowledgeable, and clearly love what they do. They often have interesting movies that you won't... More

The staff is always welcoming and they offer top rated art films. With the new Bijou Metro we have an even larger selection of great film. The downtown location has very intimate screening rooms and the original is wonderfully funky.

You will love this little theatre which offers top rated art films for the discriminating viewer. Added plus, you can have wine, beer and popcorn in the theatre. Very enjoyable experience.

I watched a movie on a Monday evening here. The staff person was superbly friendly and helpful. The venue is beautiful and different. I'd suggest, though, going WAY early to get your tickets because it seems that this plays sells out very quickly. I definitely recommend checking it out while you're in Eugene.
