Overview

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.

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...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.

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. While I love the place, their occasionally-poor selection of independent films keeps me from giving it a...More

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.
