I am fortunate to have WPKN-FM/Bridgeport hosting the Music on Film series right in my backyard. I have previously attended films about the blues, Sidemen, Long Road to Glory and Chasing Trane about John Coltrane.
I love discovering unique entertainment venues right in my backyard. A couple of months back I stumbled on the Bijou Theatre in downtown Bridgeport.The city of Bridgeport, Ct always creates a warm, eclectic feel when it comes to the arts for us. We have been steady patrons of the Downtown Cabaret Theatre as well as The Klein in Bridgeport. We’re very excited to see Elton John on November 8th in Bridgeport at The Webster Bank Arena in Harbor Yard.
The Bijou is the one of the oldest buildings used as a movie house in the country. The Bijou Theatre is a multi–functional venue with integrity and an open minded philosophy. A symposium for film, theatre, art, comedy and music.
The Bijou will be hosting its first independent film festival, The Bijou Theatre Film Festival 2013. this week October 3-6 in conjunction with Oktoberfest. The festival film that has my interest is Muscle Shoals which I blogged about a few months back (june 10, 2013). It will be screening on Saturday October 5th at 4 p.m. I can’t wait to see this film.
