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.


To rent movies, please follow these instructions:

Call us to reserve a title at (360)752-0159.

Please know what movies you would like to rent ahead of time. Have backup options!

You must pay for your order over the phone. We are only accepting credit/debit card or pre-paid account transactions at this time, not cash. Please have your card information ready when you call. (If you have an account balance, you may use that, of course -- and if you'd like to place an amount of money on your account, that's a simple way to make your transactions smoother and faster in the future.)

Call again when you have arrived at the store and are waiting at the front door. We will bring your movies out to you.

We anticipate a large amount of phone traffic. If the line is busy or we are unable to answer your call, try again after a moment. Please be patient and we will help you as soon as possible!

Stay tuned for any updates or changes as we navigate this unique situation. Thank you for your continued support, Bellingham!


We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit! If you would like to donate, you can come into the store or you can click this button:

Store Hours:
Please Note: We are currently offering curbside pickup only, due to COVID-19.

Come visit us at 1418 Cornwall Ave, inside the Allied Arts Building.

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.

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!
