The Bijou is the University of Iowa’s student-run theater that shows a wide assortment of foreign and independent films. Set on battling the evil corporate-run theaters in town, the Bijou seeks to give a voice to those underrepresented in the community. Films that have passed across the Bijou screen include Clerks, Bamboozled, Wings of Desire, and But I’m A Cheerleader. Many of the films the Bijou shows are the only times they play in an Iowa movie theater.
