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.

Loved the atmosphere and the small theater was great. We were able to walk there from our hotel about 4 blocks away and was not bothered around 10 when we walked back. The popcorn was meh, but I didn't care.

In a time of streaming and home video its a refreshing change to see a movie as its supposed to be enjoyed. Nice venue with an adobe architectural flavor. On-line booking worked perfectly and get in early for the best parking. You can pass the extra time with a glass of wine/beer. Interesting level floor seating with steeply raked backs,... More

It was freezing with 10 inches of snow on the ground and this little haven of art films warmed our soul for an afternoon. Don't miss this little downtown gem.

It's situated on a corner in a residential neighborhood and it's easy to miss if you're looking for the name displayed somewhere. There isn't one. We asked some people sitting on their porch. It was the old church across the street. We thought...what...for just $5 is it a DVD showing on a pull-down screen? But no. Inside was a small... More

A great place to see independent films with others who appreciate them. The theaters are small and comfortable. The refreshments are a cut above the multiplex and more reasonable. I love seeing films here because the customers know how to behave in a move theater and the staff is welcoming.
