Sundance Film Festival 2021

Sundance Film Festival 2021

The Belcourt is an official Satellite Screen partner of the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, Jan 29 – Feb 1. All Festival satellite screenings will be at our Belcourt Drive-In.

We’re honored that Nashville and the Belcourt Theatre have been selected as one of the 2021 Sundance Film Festival’s Satellite Screens.

In partnership with the Sundance Film Festival, and given the state of COVID-19 nationwide, we’ve decided that the best option to share our fantastic slate of Festival films is to bring back the Belcourt Drive-In.

Drive-in tickets go on sale to Belcourt members on Wed, Jan 13 at 10am and on sale to the general public Thu, Jan 14 at 10am. Capacity at each drive-in screening will be limited — and like the drive-in last summer/fall, we expect they’ll sell-out.

For these screenings, we’ll make some adjustments to our concessions and restroom protocols for health and safety — and so that our staff won’t need to be outdoors for multiple hours. It’ll be chilly, of course — as it’s been at the pre-pandemic Sundance Film Festival in Utah! So, we’ll encourage audiences to dress warmly — and it’ll be a-ok to keep your car running and heater on.

Ticket prices for Festival Drive-In satellite screenings: MEMBERS $35/vehicle | GENERAL PUBLIC $40/vehicle
