“Moorish style theatre restored”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

When I was a child it was a movie theatre. I have always loved it, beautiful woodwork, red velvet, chandeliers and a balcony. They have live performances there now, you can watch broadway shows, comedy acts, and small intimate musical groups - I saw Death Cab for Cutie there.

“Great Venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

My wife and I attend 5-6 Whatcom Symphony Orchestra concerts per year and have for the past 15 years. Built in the 1920's, it's been beautifully restored and is a great place to take in a concert.

“Nice theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Good view of stage from any seat. Not too large like arenas or stadiums. Sound system wasn't too good that night. Go early if you want parking close by.

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This is a beautiful old theater in the heart of Bellingham's downtown district. Parking can be a bit questionable, but being Bellingham you can usually find a spot several streets away. It is beautiful inside, very spacious, with different event rooms. Lots of space to mill around. The facilities are clean and the acoustics are wonderful as well. The seating was laid out nicely so everyone had plenty of room and wasn't crammed into their neighbor's laps. Good people, great service.

“Beautiful with great attractions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

A very beautiful building with a history behind. Restored a couple of decades ago, the theater is supported by a group of volunteers (besides profissional staff) who have been doing a great job to bring in a busy season with very interresting attractions.
