Film Is Truth 24 Times a Second

Film is Truth 24 Times a Second is a nonprofit, locally owned and operated DVD, Blu-ray, and VHS rental store in Bellingham, Washington. We have a little bit of everything, and we specialize in foreign films, independent movies, arthouse films, and documentaries.


We are now open at our new location at 1418 Cornwall Ave, inside the Allied Arts Building.

We have had a wonderful, nearly 3 year run inside The Public Market. It has been inspiring to share space with so many great businesses and we will always cherish the relationships we built in that time. As we expand our vision as a non-profit and continue to assess how to best serve the community, it has become clear that our best option going forward is to move back into the downtown core.

We are excited to be a part of Bellingham’s Art District and share space with both Pickford Film Center's The Limelight and Allied Arts Of Whatcom County. Our new, unique space will allow us to extend business hours and give the community more access to our collection. We will also be able to provide more goods and services like merchandise, concessions, new programming, and future events.

As everybody knows, moving is a huge task. We need your help! As we get ready for the big move, we are asking for any and all volunteers that would be interested in gifting us their time. People with trucks or folks who can move shelves are a huge help, of course, but people who want to box movies and help us clean are equally valuable! Please message us on Facebook or email to get involved.

Thank you for your constant support, Bellingham! We look forward to continue being your friendly, local video store and more for many years to come!
