Belcourt Theatre Announces 25-Film Series “1999

The Belcourt Theatre in Nashville presents a curated 25-film series celebrating the year 1999 in cinema.

NASHVILLE, TENN. (May 15, 2024) — The Belcourt Theatre, Nashville’s nonprofit film center, has announced its new series titled “1999.” This series comprises a carefully selected set of 25 films, chosen from over 150 candidates, that encapsulate the unique spirit and zeitgeist of 1999. The series opens on Friday, May 31, and runs through Sunday, June 30, featuring a diverse range of genres and formats, including both 35mm and digital.

Throughout the series, audiences will have opportunities to engage more deeply with the films through special introductions, discussions, and activities. Toby Leonard, the Belcourt’s programming director, explained the significance of 1999 in cinema, stating, “1999 is a year in cinema that’s well-regarded, and with good reason. We had been eyeing it since our 1973 series last year.” The final selection of 25 films was made after extensive input from the Belcourt staff.

Individual film tickets are available at the Belcourt’s regular prices, but there are also passes for the full series priced at $200 ($150 for Belcourt members) and ticket 5-packs available for $45 ($35 for members). In keeping with the ’90s theme, special series stickers will also be on sale.
