“Wots showing?”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

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, but totally comfortable. No problems with picture or sound quality and generally a more well-behaved crowd at art cinemas.

“Love this art cinema”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

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.

“Remember what this place looks like.”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

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 theatre with cushioned seats and a large screen. We saw "August: Osage County" on a Thursday at 5:30. There were just a few people so it turned out there was no need to buy tickets online before going. We sat back, right in the middle, with our beer and wine, and really enjoyed the show in this unique movie venue.

“Small art cinemas, nice people”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

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.

“Who doesn't love the Bijou?”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

Classic Eugene movie theatre that does a great job of selecting indie and award winning films. Love being able to grab a beer or glass of wine and enjoy the homey, eclectic atmosphere! The new downtown theater attached to the Taphouse is really fun too, grab dinner or one of MANY excellent brews in the adjoining pub and then finish your beverage while watching a thoughtful and engaging foreign film or the like! 3 Cheers for the Bijou, helping make Eugene what it is!
