The Pickford Theatre is a great representation of what Bellingham has to offer. You can see unique films and a reasonable price and enjoy wine and beer. They offer some simple meals/snack options and the staff is always friendly and helpful.

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.
