The Mount Baker Theater has garnered some national attention after
being being featured on the Sci-Fi channel's "Ghost Hunters"
program due to strange happenings, sightings, closing doors and
balls of light that shouldn't have been there. It's been
reported that "Judy" the ghost seems to have a fondness for male
projectionists and will call out their name or just sit in the
dark in the theater as if she's waiting for the movie to begin.
Perhaps she is calling out "Hey buddy, start the movie already
we've been waiting here!"
group of daring psychics spent the night inside the theater hoping
to gather evidence of paranormal activity and to get a glimpse of
"Judy" or whatever other spirits that might be haunting the
building but it isn't clear what evidence they did or didn't find.
what should be done with the apparitions if anything, if they do
in fact prove their
existence? Do they call in an expert ghost hunter to
excise them from the building or do they bring in a medium to help them cross over to the other
One thing's for certain, the ghosts or apparitions
have attracted plenty of valuable publicity for the theater and

just leave "Judy" and her friends alone for the time being.
Catch A Live Show At Bellingham's Mount Baker
Theater And See It For Yourself
Mount Baker Theater for the first time is an experience to
remember. Located in Downtown Bellingham, the
Mount Baker Theater is an important part of the community and
local culture. The theater building it's self is a national historical landmark
wide variety of professional productions, plays and concerts as
well as a host of other community performances. Built in 1929, the
Mount Baker Theater has been hosting live performances over 84 years
as well as silent movies.
Other places in the
Bellingham area purported to be haunted include the Wardner's
Castle in Fairhaven
as well as Marine Park
also in Fairhaven, once a bay front cemetery and site of an
Indian massecre. The bodies buried there were moved to make
way for the shipyard in the 1800's but apparently their ghosts
remain. Unfortunately the park is closed at night so its hard
to get a glimpse of the apparitions rising up in the moonlight
and hanging around the told tree at the water's edge.
