Attraction details
Owner description: Established in 1980, the Bijou Art Cinemas has been Eugene’s premiere source for first-run, foreign and independent films, as well as second run and classic cinema. Conveniently located between the University of Oregon campus and Downtown Eugene, the Bijou Art Cinemas is housed in a repurposed historical California Mission-style church designed and constructed in 1925 by the University of Oregon’s own W.R.B. Wilcox, the first UO Dean of Architecture. It was originally the home of the First Congregational Church.

This place has lots of charm and shows great movies. The popcorn is reasonably priced and very good.

Absolutely the greatest place I've ever seen for independent films and documentaries. Just go anytime, get yourself some popcorn with brewers yeast and ask what's playing next, see it and you won't be disappointed.

It's great to have a cinema here that shows "Indy" movies not shown in regular theaters. They choose provocative and interesting films and introduce the public to them.

The Bijou is rustic and homey. Nothing fancy here. Just friendly people with a common love of cinema. The odd art film or the less then mainstream cinema can be found here.
Bring your sense of humor and your comfort with strangers because you'll need it.

Fascinating movie selections. Old time theater.funky and eclectic. Where to go to see new art films and new up and coming directors , especially during Film Weeks in Eugene. Foreign films too !
Wish the kitty was still alive.
Now if only they would put real butter on the popcorn.
