Breaking news! Screen and seats from The Westhampton going to The Bijou.

The ownership of the building that housed the Westhampton Theatre (1938-2016) has decided – make that generously decided! – to donate the 279 seats and screen from Theatre 2 (the upstairs auditorium) to the Bijou Film Center. Needless to say, it came as great news to us when a spokesman for Westhampton LLC, confirmed the other night that it is willing to help us out in this way.

Soon we'll need to put together a small crew of volunteer workers to help remove and store this equipment. Stay tuned …

You can join more than 400 others who became members during our Leap of Faith Campaign.

By becoming a member with of the Bijou Film Center with a $50 contribution, you are helping us build a 100-seat independent art house cinema, café and nonprofit film center that will serve as a community hub for information on film exhibition, production and preservation. With help from friends like you, we will bring the best new and classic art house films to Richmond that otherwise would not be shown locally, filling a gap in the Richmond film scene.

Thanks to you, we are finalizing plans to launch our next phase — a folding-chair, pop-up style Bijou in the downtown arts and cultural district. During the next year to 18 months we will continue to build our membership base, bring new films to Richmond, finalize architectural plans and raise the “big money” necessary to build out the permanent little cinema, café and film center of our dreams.
