We were thrilled with the cozy atmosphere of this charming downtown movie venue! It felt very homey inside; and the outside was noteworthy – a historic church with tall cathedral glass windows, and notably designed in 1925 by W.R.B. Willcox (a professor/& Dean of Architecture at the University of Oregon). Willcox’s students helped design other features – including the showy... More

Locally owned and independent, the Bijou offers many fine films that are not shown in mass market chain venues. Convenient to mid-town and the University of Oregon, it is a cultural treasure in Eugene worth visiting.

You can count of this place to have the best of the best independent movies. We go often and see films that normally will not be playing in the multiplex. The staff here is really a nice group of people. The popcorn and other refreshment are reasonably priced and they have beer and wine available. This old church is a... More

The Bijou is simply a great little theater. It's set up in a funky old church and is one of the most hippie, art-house venues you'll ever see.

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.
