Belcourt Theater

Belcourt Theater

It wasn't too long ago that the residents in and around Hillsboro Village had a massive campaign to save this local landmark. You may remember the Belcourt YES! signs.

From the historical marker:
Hillsboro Theater
in 1925, the Hillsboro theater opened as a silent film house with its entrance on 21st Avenue South. The stage arch was decorated by Italian craftsman Raffaelo Mattei. It was the home of the Children's Theater of Nashville after 1931, the Grand Old Opry between 1934 and 1936, and the Nashville Community Playhouse after 1937. It became the Belcourt Cinema in 1966.
