The Belcourts recent reopening has been welcomed with open arms. Its the best place in Nashville to see movies. However, I had an unpleasant experience my first time back. They now have a small theater on the second floor, and the seats are divided in the middle by a small landing. Having arrived early, we sat in the back section right in front of the walkway. I was disheartened to see Belcourt staff bring two mobile (?) theater seats and sit them RIGHT in front of me. The couple using the seats blocked my view entirely. I had to move away from my friends just to be able to see. Adding insult to injury, someone came by halfway through and gave them free beers. Im not sure what was going on—and Im sure Belcourt just wanted to accommodate everyone wanting to see the movie—but I paid for a ticket and got there early enough to get a seat, only to be blocked by a late couple getting seats (and beers) brought in right in front of me. Please, Belcourt: dont let this be a regular occurrence.
I absolutely LOVE going to see movies at the Belcourt. Movie watching is definitely one of my main hobbies, and theres no better place in Nashville to indulge in it than the Belcourt. Between their midnight movie series, the Saturday morning series, the outdoor film series, and the endless array of independent cinema they have on their reels, there are so many options for people to enjoy here. Im beginning my membership tomorrow. I know I wont be able to use the student discount forever, so I may as well take that one step into adulthood before I graduate. As long as Im living in Nashville, I will be a member of the Belcourt. The movies and the staff are what keep me coming back, though I have to admit that the specialty cocktails they create for the midnight movies are a definite bonus! I could go on for much longer about how great this place is, but I think you get the picture by now!
By far the best theater in town, and the best indie art house in the Southeastern United States. Full bar (which is just amazing - wine, local beers, liquor selection), and quite a few food options (brats, hot dogs, pizza, candy, muffins, brownies - most of which is from local food vendors). The main theaters are GREAT. Get a membership if you can, they have fabulous perks (I think tickets are around 6-7 bucks each, and you get 20% off concessions!!!) However - be on the look out - dont watch movies in the small viewing room. We made this mistake once and will never make it again. Make sure to ask if the movie youre watching is in the big theaters!!! Will continue to support and promote Belcourt as I have been doing for the past 4 years solid. Great job on the remodel! Glad to see we have a sustainable future w/ indie film in Nashville.
We went there for a company party. While it was probably not the best idea for a party, our group was in one of the theaters with a movie running so some of us went to the lobby to talk. Understandably, we were shushed. So it wasnt the greatest idea for a social event but, when my husband ordered a rum from the bar "neat", he got a quarter inch in a plastic cup. For this hey charged $9 I thought surely there was some mistake so I asked about it and I was told that this is not a bar it is a theater. We charge 9 dollars for an oz. They said tough sh**!. I was in the service industry for a long time and that was unprofessional. Management did absolutely nothing to resolve the situation or to make the customer happy. This is what will keep me from patronizing the Belcourt again.
I went to The Belcourt Theater twice in one weekend on a recent visit to Nashville. I had not been prior to the renovation, so I can make no comparison. The staff were all very approachable and helpful, from the ticket desk to the concessions area. As for the concessions, its nice to be able to order wine or a mixed drink to enjoy with your movie, as well as the usual popcorn. The seats are comfortable and the first time I went the theater was nearly empty; the second time it was far less than half full. Im glad it was so quiet and intimate, but I hope enough people are going to support this place! I highly recommend it to anyone in the Nashville area.
Ive had a terrible experience with Bellcourt. I have a beautiful a property with in Broome Cottesloe and we engage Bellcourt as our Strata Managers. For 2 years i have been suffering under a practice where Bellcourt they send invoices for Electricity that have the due dates which is the same as the invoice date ?? and then charge you $27 in fees when you dont pay by the due date. When you want to raise issue with the directors you are fobbed off. My concern is that they just dont appear to have any appreciation as to how frustrating it is to have poor documentation and and then not to relieve any consideration by the directors. A vet poor experience.
Often I had heard of the Belcourt and thought to myself that we should go and watch a film there. Finally we did and could not understand why we waited so long! I felt that going to watch a film at the Belcourt was more of an experience instead of just going to see the latest blockbuster. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, giving us tips and information once we told them it was our first time. My wife and I both were extremely impressed with the Belcourt and will most definitely be returning on a regular basis.
The Belcourt is the ideal theater: nice location, free parking, great movie selection (a mix of indie, art house, and major releases), good beer selection, super friendly awesome staff, historic building, local art on the walls. I love this theater and am so happy that it exists. I will be a member as long as I live in town. The guy below me who complained about parking is full of it, parking is free. You have to put your receipt on your dash, but this is clearly explained, so if you get a ticket thats on you brah!
Nashvilles non-profit theater. This is really unique movie theater. It feels like and Indi movie theater. They offer a wide not-your-run-of-the-mill eating fair, including alcoholic beverages. Their movies are not the same you would find a corporate chain movie theater but the indie and not very well known movies. They give you a parking voucher when you purchase a movie ticket. The theater is always clean and the staff is very welcoming.

The only art theatre in Nashville -- here you will find the latest indie and foreign film gems, cult favorites, as well as classics, depending on the time of year. Loads of great musical and local events here, as well. Worthwhile membership, too, as a nonprofit. Located in a great neighborhood around Vanderbilt University and Belmont University, and just down the street from the famous Pancake Pantry.
Parking lot extortion racket. Took the kids here to see a play. We emerged from theater into the parking lot clearly marked for Belcourt customers, to find some kind of homemade parking ticket on the windshield of several cars (mine included) demanding $30.00 lest our tag numbers be turned over to a collection agency. A little too much hassle to see an amateur play at a discount theater.
