Pickford Film Center opens new facility
BELLINGHAM, WA — The non-profit Pickford Film Center celebrated the opening of its new twin-auditorium theater on Bay Street on April 7. The environmentally-sensitive cinema is capable of both 35mm and digital projection; the Center focuses on presenting art, independent, and avant-garde films. The Center’s current home on Cornwall Avenue will close at least temporarily, but may become a digital projection cinema under a different name.
The arts organization began renovating the building in 2007, continuing to raise money for the project as the work progressed.
Renovations included a seismic upgrade and adding 5,000 square feet of usable space to the basement for future expansion, including a film school.
