NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – It’s been over 50 years since any major projects at the Belcourt Theatre, but the launch of a new campaign aims to renovate and refurbish the building.

The Belcourt Campaign is seeking $4.5 million to help preserve our 90-year-old building. At this time, the campaign has raised just over half of that goal.

The money would go to preserving and renovating the 1925 Hall, making the restrooms wheelchair accessible, and upgrading core systems like plumbing and HVAC.

The project is expected to begin in 2016. The building will close during the 5-month period from January to June, estimated by architects Tuck-Hinton and builder R.C. Mathews Contractor.

The theatre won’t go completely dark during that time as it will join with community partners for a series of pop-up screenings around Nashville. The yearly Red Carpet Evening will be held off site in February.
