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!

If you want to see one of the latest movies, don't miss the Pickford Film Center. Run by volunteers it show "just released" films. The seats are comfortable and the air-conditioning, perfect. If you come early or stay after the show you may purchase "eats" and they have little tables available. A great place!

Very comfortable art style movie house that you may see very uncommercial but even great movies - its not snooty either which makes it very accessible and the staff and concessionaires are friendly and welcoming

Have seen several movies here and never been disappointed by the atmosphere or staff! I wish the ticket purchasing set-up were a little different but hey, as long as you get a ticket! The only dislike was the fact that the butter applied to the popcorn shriveled the kernels into mush, so do not order butter on your corn!

I saw "Muscle Shoals", "Good Ole' Freda" and my stepson's school's film fest here—it is a great, small town film venue.
