Have a safe and happy holiday! See you next year!
Unfortunately Friday (tonight’s) screening of Holy Motors is canceled due to technical difficulties.
There was a misprint in the recent Little Village – the Bijou is NOT showing Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work. That was somehow taken from last year’s Bijou schedule. Sorry for the mix up.
For the last two years, the Bijou has been free for UI students. This has led to a budget shortfall for the last two years. In order to continue operating, we at the Bijou must raise the price of a ticket for UI students to $3. While we deeply regret this development, we feel that it is better to charge a token admission fee than to decrease the services we are able to offer students.
We hope you continue to attend and enjoy shows at the Bijou, which is still, dollar for dollar, one of the cheapest entertainment options on campus and certainly, at $1 for concessions, the cheapest place to eat in Iowa City.
The Bijou will be closed with no films showing both Tuesday the 3rd and Wednesday the 4th in respect of the national holiday. Have a nice 4th of July!
The Bijou is ran by a board of volunteers, all passionate about film. If you enjoy film and would like to be apart of the board of the U of I’s very own indie and art house Bijou theater, we encourage you to apply!
