What better way to celebrate Bijou After Hours than with Martin Scorsese's After Hours (1985)? The final film of our 50th Anniversary season, After Hours celebrates decades of late-night cinema with the Bijou Film Board. Presented in 35mm film!

In a Manhattan cafe, word processor Paul Hackett (Griffin Dunne) meets and talks literature with Marcy (Rosanna Arquette), and takes a cab to her downtown apartment. Soon he finds himself in a series of awkward, surreal and life-threatening situations with a colorful cast of characters, all as he tries to return uptown.

Bijou Film Board is a nonprofit, student-run organization dedicated to the exhibition of independent, foreign, and classic cinema. After Hours is our catch-all film series which is dedicated to cult classics, genre films, and recent releases. Prizes are given out before the film begins at every After Hours screening!

All Bijou programming is FREE for UI students and $8 for the general public, screened at FilmScene (at the Chauncey) at 404 E College St.

Free student tickets for After Hours films must be claimed in-person at the FilmScene box office. To purchase general admission tickets in advance, visit the FilmScene website at ic.filmscene.org/series-special-events/ .
