The Bijou is going to show you movies that you won't find anywhere else in Eugene. It's also going to show movies that everyone is talking about. And then, they're going to show movies that are pretty mainstream, too -- even though it is billed as an "art cinema".
Located near the UofO on 13th Avenue, the Bijou Cinemas are inside a "Spanish-style" building that I believe was once a funeral home. It's a very interesting place -- and pulls in crowds for many showings. So go early and get your ticket. I think they have a movie pass book that can save you money, so ask about that when you buy.
The space is available to rent for parties or meetings. They have a snack bar with some offbeat snack items, along with your usual candy and popcorn.
International films, Sundance-type films and documentaries are usually on the show list. At the late night movies right now they are showing "Animal House" with John Belushi -- a hoot, since that film was shot in Eugene, some of it right up the street from the Bijou's location.
