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.

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.
