November 17th meeting … “The Revival of The Bijou Theatre in Bridgeport”

7 11 2011

Our speaker for the November 17th meeting of FINE Business Networking is Lynn Julian, a partner in the revival of The Bijou Theatre in Bridgeport. Ms. Julian will talk about the entrepreneurial challenges of starting the business, which just had its grand opening in September, about their marketing programs, and the role of the theater in the revitalization of Bridgeport.

The Bijou Theatre, dating back to 1909, is located in one of the oldest buildings used as a movie house in the country, and continually run as a movie house. The Bijou Theatre is a luxurious, diverse, multi-use venue, known for its unique mix of independent, documentary and classic films, live comedy, music and theatre.

Ms. Julian (marketing/pr director) and her partners, Christine Brown (program director) and Kathy Reynolds (operations director), have created a synergistic, creative relationship, combining different perspectives, experience, education and talent, that has developed the brand, and fueled the launch of the theatre.

“Our chief goal is to cultivate the personality of The Bijou and tap into its past to bring a newfound energy to Bridgeport.  Both the theatre and the city have seen prosperity and peril over the decades. We couldn’t be more excited to have opened the Bijou’s doors at a time when an artist murmuring is captivating within this urban, industrial setting.  We hope to do our small part to support the kind of fresh exchange, the dynamism that means revitalization for Bridgeport and for its residents and neighbors.”  You will be entertained, as soon as you walk through the doors.
