We have seen several movies here during our visits to Bellingham in the last few years and have always had a good experience. The staff are always friendly and helpful, the seats comfortable, and the selection of films interesting, though some of them seem to run forever.

This may be one of the nicest theaters I've ever been to. I love that it is community funded. The staff here are top notch!

They offer what the big box theaters don't, movies to talk and think about. There is a coffee and wine bar to relax in before or after the show.the venue has changed in recent years, new theatre with very comfortable stadium seating.

The Pickford film center has great digital projection and and amazing sound system. Jump away from the cineplex of the same old, same old, and head to the Pickford for the interesting, unique, and different. Both locations (Limelight and Main) are great with superb seating and sound.

The Pickford is the best place to catch off beat art and foreign films - no blockbusters here. Attracts an urbane followoing of locals who appreciate the eco friendly community feel. Highly recommended

The new Pickford theatre shows very high quality films. The building is new, the seats are super comfortable, and they serve beer, wine and great snacks in the lobby. The volunteer staff is always friendly. Great place to support!

Great selection of movies that are not modern hollywood. Well worth $10, we got a great speaker before the film who set the atmosphere for a classic film. Sponsored by a local film group and local small businesses. I would recommend over any modern multipex Hollywood theatre that pumps out anything as long as it has no substance and lots... More
