We’re showing the “The Big Lebowski” in the beer garden again on Friday, Sept 10th at dusk. This is a fundraiser for the Capital Campaign to build the new Pickford Film Center (PFC) and the suggested donation is $5, though you should definitely feel free to donate more! :) Due to the late start time for the movie,
Slated to open in late 2010, the PFC will serve as a community living room, situated at the epicenter of the Arts District in downtown Bellingham. The new film center will allow PFC to better fulfill a core mission of the organization – providing our community with the highest quality movie-going experience possible at an affordable price. The new Pickford Film Center will feature: 250 seat capacity, triple current level, two screens offering a wide range of programming for all ages, 1300 sq. ft. lobby/café/concessions for after movie discussions, Fully ADA compliant, LEED certified with sustainable building practices integrated throughout and Theatre and lobby rental space for business or personal use.
The Capital Campaign to build PFC has raised over $3 million of its $3.25 million dollar goal and construction is now 70% complete. Help open the doors of Pickford Film Center by pledging or donating today…or by coming to The Big Lebowski movie night in our Beer Garden on September 10th!
Pickford Film Center (PFC) is more than movies! A vital, mission-driven organization dedicated to its community, PFC offers an authentic, rich and uniquely Bellingham “experience” in a casual and friendly environment. PFC programming brings people from all walks of life together to celebrate the joy of the moving image. PFC was founded in 1998 by a small group of local film fans dedicated to making high-quality cinema available in Bellingham and the entire Whatcom County region. The mission of PFC is to provide a forum and resource for independent cinema, strengthening community through education, dialogue and the celebration of film. PFC offers year-round, independent, foreign and documentary film and related special events.
We are also holding a coloring contest as part of our Big Lebowski night! There are two posters to choose from and you can download either online or pick one up when you’re here at the brewery. We’ll be giving away prizes during movie night for the best, unique & fun entries. Choose either poster and use any method to alter the poster, photoshop, crayons, paint, multimedia, etc. Turn in your entry by email or bring it into the brewery. Make sure to include your name, age (for kids) & email or phone number.
Email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped off in the foyer here at the brewery, with your contact info written on the back. Winners will be decided on before the movie.
