Bellingham's parks have always been a locally loved and widely admired part of the city. This exhibition from the Whatcom Museum's Photo Archives, and the second with a parks-theme, features a dozen "new" historical views of Bellingham parks including images of Cornwall, Fairhaven, Whatcom Falls and Elizabeth parks, among others. It's a celebration of the community green in glorious black and white, perfect inspiration for getting outside in the summer months ahead.

Take one pair of estranged twin brothers (both called Antipholus), and one pair of estranged twin servants (both called Dromio), keep them in ignorance of each other and throw them into a city with a reputation for sorcery, and you have all the ingredients for theatrical chaos. One Antipholus is astonished by his foreign hospitality; the other enraged by the hostility of his home town. The Dromios, caught between the two, are soundly beaten for obeying all the wrong orders. 134 Minutes Not Rated
