The Bijou’s concession stand offers pizza, popcorn, soda, water, coffee and assorted candy & treats. There is also a full bar serving your favorite adult beverages.

Just a friendly reminder that the Bijou Theatre is NOT a BYOB or BYOF venue. As with most facilities of this type, we do not allow outside food or beverages to be brought into the theatre. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.


The Bijou offers a mix of seating options. The traditional movie style theatre seating is always general admission (non reserved). The café (table) seating is usually sold on a reserved basis (you can purchase individual seats at each table). Some events offer general admission for café seating as well (check when purchasing tickets). We feel you cannot go wrong with either option as there is literally not a bad seat in the house.
