Bijou Art Cinemas captivates audiences with a rotating lineup of foreign, independent, and classic films shown in charming and intimate theaters.

Matinee and general-admission showings feature films from a variety of genres including dramas, documentaries, and thrillers, whereas late-night screenings diverge toward horror flicks and cult classics like The Room. Though not included in this Groupon, Bijou Art Cinemas hosts numerous special events, such as interactive screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show ($10) and a silent-movie remake of High School Musical performed by mice. Customers can check the website for an updated schedule of movies and showtimes.

For nearly 30 years, Mudslinger Events/Oregon Trail Runs has encouraged Oregonians to explore their state by foot or by wheel. Started by a group of mountain biking enthusiasts, the organization creates runs and rides that get the blood pumping?including its namesake event, the Mudslinger, which sends cyclists racing through the Starker Forests. Off the bike, trail runs to the top of Mary's Peak and probably not through the Alsea Falls give participants a new perspective on the lush Northwest landscape.
Every year, revelers gather in the forest of the Pacific Northwest to "experience the magic of the realm." Faerieworlds brings together music acts from around the globe, including celtic rock bands, folks trios, didgeridoo prodigies, ghost cellists, and more ethereal artists. Under bright lights and twinkling stars, audiences shed their inhibitions to dance, commune, eat, drink, and find new friends during the three-day celebration.
Faerieworlds, a soft footprint event, reduces its impact on the physical world by using environmentally-sound practices and encouraging audiences to do the same. Organic and vegetarian food vendors fill the bellies of hungry guests. Afterwards, they can employ the onsite glass, paper, and plastic recycling programs. A rideshare program helps save gas, and 100% green electrical power reduces the footprint more effectively than building a massive megaphone in front of every stage.

Good Times neighborhood pub hums with lively chatter and upbeat music from the early morning until late at night, attracting and catering to all types of crowds. Bartenders craft mixed drinks and dish out drafts from the bar's selection of 32 microbrews, domestics, and imports on tap. Servers dodge wayward pool sticks as they seek out tables, juggling trays of specialty burgers, crispy nachos, and?during weekend breakfast hours?giant stacks of crispy hash browns.
The atmosphere is equally energetic out on the outdoor patio, a covered terrace that reporters from Eugene Weekly described as "huge" and "pool bedecked". Here, customers perch on tall black chairs, their faces illuminated by glowing heat lamps and TVs broadcasting live sporting events or breaking news from the trusted source of Sesame Street.
