The Bijou Presents – September
On Sat., Sept. 10, 2016, the Bijou Film Center at 304 E. Broad St. will offer the public two screenings of “Miss Sharon Jones,” a new documentary directed by Barbara Kopple, a two-time Academy Award winning filmmaker.
Note: Kopple’s film presents an extraordinarily talented and lovable woman maintaining her dignity in the face of whatever daunting obstacles she encounters. Sandwiched between the singer’s sparkling performances onstage, Jones battles pancreatic cancer with a the-show-must-go-on spirit that makes the film more than just another documentary about a singer/musician.
Showtimes: 7:15 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
Admission: $9.00 (members $7.00). Available only at the door; no advance tickets.
To bring movies back to Broad Street we’ve spent a chunk of the money we raised from memberships on rent and projection equipment. Yet, to open on Friday, we’ll still be using some borrowed stuff. Meanwhile, here’s a quick glance at other September bookings for The Bijou:
Sept: 17: A double feature of two beloved French classics – “The 400 Blows” (1959) and “The Red Balloon” (1956).
Sept: 24: In conjunction with cinemas coast-to-coast, participating in the first national Art House Theater Day, The Bijou will present a thoroughly entertaining new documentary about rock ‘n’ roll impresario Danny Fields, “Danny Says” (2016).
More news about these films and the progress The Bijou is making to build out our shared dream will soon follow.
