wonderful people there and comfortable viewing experience

Pickford shows films you cannot see at a chain movie theater. The seating and the sound system make the viewing experience a wonderful event.

I love the movies. Good Movies. Great Movies. Classic Movies. Independent Movies. You can find your own personal genre here due to great selections on the part of 'management' though it's really a community based collaborative. There two wonderful theatres with comfortable seating as well as being Accessible. Wonderful restrooms (ladies) and last but not least, fantastic concessions and volunteers... More

Movies that will not be playing anywhere else in town. Beer? Wine? It's okay, you don't have to sneak it in. Comfortable seats? Check. Support these guys, they are working hard, and doing it up nicely. Cool and quirky movies. Go out on a date.

We recently enjoyed an afternoon matinee (to see "Grandma" at the Pickford and we were reminded of what a good place it is to visit. We are members, even though we live an hour's drive away, and we recommend it to our friends. The selection of movies is always interesting, and the only problem is that we can't be there... More

Everything about the Pickford Film Center rates a resounding 5 "stars", from the type of films shown here, including first run, art films, documentaries, and local film maker showings to the comfortable the seats and the great sight lines of the two theatres as well as the cafe in the lobby where you can snack and drink wine before or...

The Pickford is a really neat little theater. They have just the two screens and a very small town feel, but the decor, furniture and layout are comfortable, modern and classy. Their pricing isn't too bad, given the films they show are often very hard to see in theaters elsewhere. And for once I bought concession candy from a movie... More

This is a great addition to Bellingham's downtown. Comfortable seating , a vibrant atmosphere, and of course great movies, including out of the mainstream shows.

I joined the Pickford when I moved to the Bellingham area & I'm so glad I did. They show the very best movies, not the ones you would get at the big cinemas. I would highly recommend the Pickford Film Center.

Great venue for art and independent films. It's really a jewel in the Pacific Northwest. You can see films you would not see in most movie houses. A definite must if you are in Bellingham for more than a day.
