Founded in 1998 by local film buffs, Pickford Film Center (affectionately known by locals simply as The Pickford) started as a small independent theatre but has grown into regions leading venue for independent film. Open year round, The Pickford brings the best in independent film to Bellingham, WA and greater Whatcom county and thanks to their impressive new facilities opened in 2010, even more people can see great films. Having lived in Bellingham for four years, yours truly has had the distinct pleasure of experiencing The Pickford first hand and I can comfortably say it’s something that shouldn’t be missed.

So, if you’re in Bellingham whether as a student attending WWU or just passing through, be sure to stop on by The Pickford and the locals will be sure to show you a good time!
