The team at Bijou love film, and they’re here to bring cinema to you: the community. Matinees and evening films include classics old and new, independent films not shown at multiplexes, and dynamic world cinema. They encourage customers to write their Film and Arts Events requests on the chalkboard in the Cafe/Bar, as recommendations for future programming!
On the accessible ground floor is a friendly Cafe/Bar/Box Office, with a chic-style Fracino Retro Coffee Machine. They also sell a range of bottled lagers, ales and wines and well as assorted soft drinks, all before and after the film screenings. They also welcome well-behaved dogs in their bar too! New accessible unisex toilets are open for Bijou customers, and for accessible assistance into the building itself, please press the front door bell.
Adjacent to the Cafe/Bar is the Cinema – a raked auditorium with comfortable seats and an Optoma 8000-lumens projector, plus 5.1 Surround Sound speakers to present an immersive cinematic experience. There are 2 wheelchairs spaces available at the front, as well as an induction loop system installed.
On the first floor, not accessible by lift, is The Lounge, an open space for events and parties! It has a new multi-lighting system with comfortable sofas and easy chairs. Also upstairs is the Media Room for talks, films, or to just chill-out and watch the HDTV.
