Movie theaters in Eugene
The tail end of June means one very important thing — it’s summer movie season! For those taking in the Olympic Trials who want a fun place to go in the evenings or just want to get away from the track for a bit, Eugene offers several movie theaters to take in the next summer blockbuster.
The nicest movie theater in town is Regal Cinema at the Valley River Center. Located in the main shopping center in Eugene, this option is a great place to couple that movie with a great meal and some shopping in the mall.
Another option that is available for moviegoers is the Gateway Mall in Springfield. While it is not technically in Eugene, the Gateway Mall is just about two minutes north on the I-5.
Gateway offers two great theaters depending on what you are looking for. The first is Cinemark 17, a typical movie theater that shows new releases. However, just on the other side of the mall is Cinemark 12, which shows delayed releases for extremely low prices. The movies are usually a few months old but still current enough that you can’t find them on Netflix, On Demand or normal DVD. These movies generally only charge a dollar or two per person.
If you’re in the mood for something with a more Eugene stamp, check out the Bijou Arts Cinema on 13th Avenue and Ferry Street. Housed in an old church, the Bijou offers movies that aren’t widely released, like independent films, foreign films and documentaries.
No matter which theater you choose, Eugene has something for everybody. Enjoy the show!
