MISSION


    The Belcourt Theatre’s mission is to engage, enrich, and educate through innovative film programming in our historic theatre, our community, and beyond.

     

    HISTORY


    The Belcourt Theatre is a unique Nashville treasure with a vibrant historic past and deep roots in the community. Today, the Belcourt is a nonprofit cultural institution dedicated to presenting the best of independent, documentary, world, repertory and classic cinema. The Belcourt provides opportunities for people of all ages to discover, explore and learn through the power of film. We cultivate and build on the powerful sense of shared experience that audiences can achieve — taking advantage of our building’s physical character and location in the heart of a lively Nashville neighborhood. At the same time, we work with community partners throughout Nashville and Middle Tennessee to bring inspiring films to children and young people with our Mobile Movie Theatre.

    Today, the Belcourt Theatre thrives—and in 2016, underwent a renovation and preservation project, the building’s first major work in 50 years. The Belcourt is recognized as one of Nashville’s most vibrant arts organizations and as a leader among the country’s art houses regionally and nationally. The Belcourt attracts audiences from throughout Middle Tennessee and the Southeast region, as well as visitors from more than 44 states and from five other countries — a total of approximately 160,000 visitors annually. We program over 300 films a year, with more than 2,300 screenings. Over 13,600 people participate in our yearly in-theatre engagement programs, including Q&As with filmmakers and conversations with experts, scholars and community commentators. More than 1,300 students in our community benefit from film programming and visual literacy activities through our Mobile Movie Theatre visits in conjunction with 35 partner schools or organizations.
