In 2025, the Belcourt turns 100. We plan to mark that important milestone in many celebratory ways —and we are starting with the work of compiling a comprehensive, thorough history of the Belcourt and the role it’s had in Nashville —as well as in wider spheres of film, entertainment, arts and culture.
An essential part of the Belcourt’s history is the stories of audiences who’ve filled our seats —and graced our stage, lived nearby, worked front-of-house or behind-the-scenes, and saw the ups and downs of Nashville’s oldest neighborhood theater.
Whatever your connections, experiences, reflections and memories, we hope you’ll share your Belcourt story.
To help you do so, we’ve created the Belcourt Stories Project. Through the Belcourt Stories Project, we gather individual stories (via video-recorded oral history) —which we’ll organize, index and share in a variety of formats during our 100th anniversary year.
We’re using a platform created by a group called TheirStory, one that is specially designed to collect, preserve and share individual histories.
Here’s how it works. Click the button above or this link, and you will be taken to the Belcourt’s secure TheirStory profile. At that link, you can record yourself (both video and audio). And as you’ll see, we have included a series of questions that help prompt story-telling.
When you’re done, the platform makes it easy for you to send your recording to us. That’s it.
We look forward to hearing your Belcourt story —and thank you.
