The Belcourt's mission is to engage, enrich, and educate through innovative film programming in our historic theatre, our community, and beyond.
The Belcourt is a nonprofit cultural institution dedicated to presenting the best of independent, documentary, world, repertory and classic cinema. The Belcourt provides opportunities for people of all ages to discover, explore and learn through the power of film.
The Belcourt offers the following equipment to our patrons — available at the box office at no charge. Just ask! (Please keep in mind that closed captioning and descriptive audio are not available on all films.)
For patrons with hearing aids equipped with telecoils, hearing loops are installed in the 1925 and 1966 Halls (first floor), in the Manzler/Webb Screening Room (second floor), and in the Jackson Education and Engagement Space (second floor). Please set your device to Telecoil or “T.”
Assistive listening headphones are available for all films, and amplify audio for patrons who are hard of hearing. Headphones are self-contained and have independent right/left audio control.
When films are equipped with closed captioning, we offer two different closed captioning devices for patrons who are deaf or hard of hearing: (1) small easy-to-read LED screens that fit in a seat’s cup holder; (2) glasses that enable closed captioning projection on lenses. (Please note that not all films are equipped with closed captioning. Films with closed captioning include this icon on our website.)
