This Mon, May 20 at 8pm, THE WORLD GREATEST SINNER for #MusicCityMondays — in a new 4K restoration — and introduced by artist and Belcourt staffer Cody Lee Hardin @codysuckscartoons. (Tickets at link in bio, or

Insurance salesman Clarence Hilliard (Timothy Carey) falls under the influence of the devil (James Farley), quits his job and becomes an offbeat evangelist, preaching that every man is eternal and calling himself “the God Hilliard.” His cult-like following explodes as he spreads his philosophy through hip-swiveling rock ‘n’ roll. Soon he grows wealthy, seduces women of all ages and runs for president. But, when those closest to Hilliard desert him, he must face himself––and the actual God.

We 💙 our Belcourt audiences — amidst stormy weather forecasts, they came out! Here’s the first of three sold-out screenings of WILDCAT, each featuring post-screening discussions with director/co-writer and four-time Academy Award® nominee Ethan Hawke (moderated by the Belcourt’s education and engagement director Allison Inman).

Thank you, @ethanhawke, for visiting the Belcourt again and so generously sharing your time and thoughtful insights with our audiences. And supporting the work of art house theaters like the Belcourt and the audiences that support us. (FYI...Ethan last came to the Belcourt with his film BLAZE.)

And come see WILDCAT at the Belcourt — with Maya Hawke starring as the celebrated Southern Gothic writer Flannery O’Connor and Laura Linney as her mother — performances called “exquisite” by @hollywoodreporter. (Showtimes and tickets at link in bio, or

“You won’t see any other film so unique and different this year… OMEN introduces a different kind of storytelling than Western filmmaking… Using the magical realism and symbolism steeped in tradition old and new, the film is a kaleidoscopic picture of bustling Africa that is here and now.” —Dustin Chang @ScreenAnarchy
