This Mon, Feb 5, our Swoon: A Love Series continues at 8pm with Hal Ashby’s 1971 HAROLD AND MAUDE (along with its iconic Cat Stevens soundtrack — so, a #MusicCityMondays too) — and introduced by the Belcourt’s Cody Lee Hardin @codysuckscartoons >

“In 1971, HAROLD AND MAUDE was a box-office disaster. In 1983, it is, at last, a profitable movie. Twelve years later, profit checks have been sent to HAROLD AND MAUDE’s director, Hal Ashby; its author, Colin Higgins; and its star, Ruth Gordon. Ruth Gordon almost threw her $50,000 check away. ‘I thought it was one of those sweepstakes from the Reader’s Digest,’ she said.” —Aljean Harmetz @nytimes (1983)

“It’s impossible not to succumb to the operatic sweep. Visually stunning and unrepentantly grandiose, it feverishly pulls you in with its operatic sweep and its appeal to the primary senses. It suggests an epic that Visconti and Sirk might have made after they finished watching VERTIGO and reading “Madame Bovary” while gorging themselves on aphrodisiacs” ––Melissa Anderson, Village Voice (Jun 15, 2010)

“There’s great teamwork here — between Illeana Douglas and her vulgarian mentor [John] Turturro; in the delightful scene when our heroine and her British collaborator (Patsy Kensit) write a coded love song for a lesbian pop star (Bridget Fonda); in the film’s rousing original soundtrack, which daringly pairs ‘60s and ‘90s talents (Burt Bacharach and Elvis Costello!).” —David Ansen, Newsweek (Oct 6, 1996)

“Although it certainly has a feast at its center, it would be a mistake to think that its tribute is intended only for great cooks. No, it’s a deep reverence to all great artists — whether they make books, bowls or ballets, baskets, quilts, songs, poems, paintings . . . or films” re @LATimes (1988).

Next in our #SundaySupper series, BABETTE’S FEAST this Sun, Jan 28 at 7pm. Screening in #35mm film — and with an intro from @erinbmurray, food writer and editor in chief of @thelocalpalate >

Attention aspiring young filmmakers! The Belcourt’s education and engagement program and @VanderbiltU’s cinema and media arts department are partnering to host a filmmaking workshop for high school students (10th, 11th and 12th grade). The workshop will be held in the Belcourt’s Jackson Education and Engagement Space on two consecutive Saturdays. You’ll learn all stages of filmmaking – from development all the way through post-production and exhibition – and collaborate with each other to make a short film. Tickets are $75 ($50 Belcourt members) — and need-based scholarships are available. Contact for info. (Link in bio, or bit.lateen-Filmmaking-Workshop)

Capacity is very limited. No experience is necessary. Equipment, lunch and snacks will be provided.

The workshop is led by Mariah Kramer, senior lecturer of cinema and media arts at Vanderbilt University, with the assistance of a Vanderbilt cinema and media arts graduate student and Belcourt education and engagement director Allison Inman.

Please note: Tickets for single sessions are not available. You must attend both days to participate.

This weekend, Sat-Sun at Jan 27-28 at 12:45pm, DR. ZHIVAGO (and snow!) on the big screen — in all its 200-min glory (+ a 10-min intermission — David Lean’s 1965 pure spectacle epic, tailor-made for the cinemascope screen in our 1925 Hall. (Tickets at link in bio, or

“Stories about love in a world gone mad don’t come any more gorgeous, or any more sweepingly epic, than this…. It requires effort, stamina through its long hours, but Lean creates moments of cinema for history (if not quite the vice versa).... And if Maurice Jarre’s soaring score, a landscape in itself, doesn’t move you then you have ice in your veins as cold as a Siberian winter.” —Ian Nathan, @empiremagazine (Jan 1, 2020)

“THE ZONE OF INTEREST isn’t a portrait of the victims of the Holocaust. It’s a portrait of the perpetrators. Yet what hovers over every moment is a human monstrousness that’s at once inflicted and repressed. The film’s haunting subject is the compartmentalization of evil.” —@Variety

#JonathanGlazer’s THE ZONE OF INTEREST now playing (tickets at link in bio, or <>)

Yes, we’ll be open today (Fri). For safety’s sake however, we’ve canceled late evening screenings — *including tonight’s midnight movie. If you purchased a ticket for any of those late evening screenings, refunds are being issued. Thanks for your understanding.

*For midnight fans… We’ll play TORSO at some point in the future, but due to prior engagements, we’re unable to reschedule it in the short term. See you tomorrow for FOOTPRINTS (hopefully)?

Next up in our #SundaySupper series — this Sun, Jan 21 at 7pm — Louis Malle’s 1981 captivating and philosophical MY DINNER WITH ANDRE screening in #35mm, with an introduction from @VanderbiltU’s Scott Juengel, associate professor of English.

“Illustrates how much human interest, entertainment value and even philosophical inquiry can be derived from a situation as static as a dinner conversation. It should also prove a great incentive for dining out and shooting the bull in general.” —Gary Arnold, Washington Post (Jan 19, 1982)
