Pickford Film Center and 92.9 KISM present Rooftop Cinema – the outdoor summer film series in downtown Bellingham. Mark you calendars for three Friday nights this summer: July 28, August 25 and September 8 and join us on the rooftop of the Parkade at 1300 Commercial St. where festivities begin at 6:30 with a beer garden, live music and entertainment, food trucks, activities and more!
Each film begins at dusk, when the sun is finished setting and the sky is dark enough to see the film. The Parkade, located on the 1300 block of Commercial Street, will have four floors of free parking below the event.

Ulysses Everett McGill (George Clooney) is having difficulty adjusting to his hard-labor sentence in Mississippi. He scams his way off the chain gang with simple Delmar (Tim Blake Nelson) and maladjusted Pete (John Turturro), then the trio sets out to pursue freedom and the promise of a fortune in buried treasure.

Director Jonathan Demme captures the frantic energy and artsy groove of Talking Heads in this concert movie shot at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in 1983. The band’s frontman, David Byrne, first appears on an empty stage, armed with only an acoustic guitar, and is gradually joined by bassist Tina Weymouth, drummer Chris Frantz, keyboardist Jerry Harrison and a cadre of backup singers as they perform the band’s hits, culminating in an iconic performance featuring Byrne in an enormous suit.
