Starting Sept. 12 UL’s Bayou Bijou Film Series begins again in the Student Union.
The film series is dedicated to bringing films never before screened in Lafayette. Many are foreign or independent features and are typically more provocative fare than the usual visual meal at our standard cineplexes, though whether they are more filling is up to the viewer.
Tickets are either $20 for the whole season, $3 at the door for the general public or $2 for students and faculty of UL. Movies are shown twice on Mondays, once at 4 p.m. and again at 7 p.m.
We've included links to the movies' official sites or good reviews. Plenty are winners at Cannes or the Oscars.
David Calhoun and Elizabeth “EB” Brooks are the first two employees of Lafayette Central Park Inc., the nonprofit charged with turning Lafayette Consolidated Government’s 100-acre Johnston Street Horse Farm property into a passive public park. Calhoun was named executive director, and Brooks is director of planning and design.
There will soon be a whole lot of shakin’ going on at Benny’s Sportshack Supplement Depot, a new concept by Opelousas native Benny Nele. Located at 2002 Johnston St., the supplement shop, smoothie bar and café, featuring hot off the press paninis and wraps, plans to open in late May.
