Coming Thursday: Film Fest opening of Bijou will be close shave

TRAVERSE CITY — Traverse City Film Festival President Michael Moore looks heavenward, and Thom Darga has his fingers crossed as Con Foster Museum's transformation into a movie theater pushes to within a razor's edge of its scheduled grand opening.

Final inspection by the Grand Traverse County Construction Codes office, the fire marshal, and county health department will take place Thursday and Friday. The new theater, dubbed Bijou by the Bay, is supposed to host a grand opening on Monday at 8 p.m. and show films during next week's Film Festival.

"Keep your fingers crossed," said Darga, the project's general contractor. "If they do find something, I'll have one day to fix it and get it reinspected."
