If you want to see a variety of movies this is a place to go. The movies are very thoughtful and at times involve the community, especially during Doctober. The staff is pleasant, mostly made up of volunteers who love this theater

A wonderful place to watch a movie. Comfy chairs and wine... a perfect date night. The Pickford is in an historical building in downtown Bellingham. A hidden treasure.

So many wonder movies of so many different genres. Love being able to see the Met productions on the screen. Excellent food choices & pop corn toppings.

Seeing a film here is so special. A much more comfortable experience that in the bigger theaters. The Lobby has a welcoming flare as you enter. I would describe The Pickford as charming and eclectic.

Although not a member of the Pickford Film Center, I go there every month or so and am always happy with the films I saw. Obviously they specialize in independent films and there is a huge number of excellent ones for the PFC to choose from.

My girlfriend and I really like this place. It's a lot cozier than the big name theaters. They also have a lot more interesting films here. Keep checking the show list to mind something you'd like to see. Only down I see is parking but that's all over Bellingham so don't let it stop you from going.

Wonderful and casual theater for seeing independent films. Their new, but now older, theater has a great place to sit and have a coffee, pastry, beer or wine before the show. How lucky we are to have this theater in town. They also offer special dining and watching nights a few times during the year , special Oscar nite viewing... More

Both first run films as well as Classic films come here to be enjoyed in this wonderful space with comfortable seats and innovative concessions. The Pickford is my favorite venue for Film watching!
