Rooftop Cinema Line-Up Announced for Summer 2023

Rooftop Cinema, Pickford Film Center's outdoor rooftop cinema series on the top of the downtown Parkade at 1300 Commercial St.

Join us for food, fun, and film. Show up early for an epic Bellingham Bay sunset and activities!

Party @ 7 pm | Film @ Dusk | Aways free


This year’s series featuring three complex women in the lead roles of their respective films is a movie fan’s play on Houston rapper, Megan Thee Stallion’s “Hot Girl Summer” song from 2019.

From law school, to frozen tundras and desert wastelands, all the way to the top of the Commercial Street Parkade, this summer we’re celebrating bad-ass women in film!

Each of the women in these films offer us very different representations of what a "strong woman character" means. So often, "strong" is equated with brawn and muscles, and what a limiting notion that is! Here, we've got strength in very different forms and contexts.

Founded in 1998, the Pickford Film Center serves the Whatcom community by screening independent films 365 days a year, producing and presenting the annual Doctober film festival, the Bellingham Children’s Film Festival, numerous film series and special events. The Pickford offers free documentary film showings to all Whatcom middle schools through Doc-ED and partners with students and schools for many other events during the year.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
