Best Recurring Movie Night

The Belcourt has long been Nashville’s primary place for cinematic alternatives, and its Music City Mondays series has been a haven for choice documentaries and feature films spotlighting or devoted to music. They’ve also been very idiomatically diverse in the offerings, from a film about the outstanding but hardly well-known drummer Milford Graves to more popular fare about country, pop, rock and even African music. Sadly the pandemic has temporarily put a halt to the Belcourt’s regular programming and thus the series, but the theater filled in the gap by making many wonderful music films available to stream, among them Jazz on a Summer’s Day and Mr. Soul! Let’s hope that soon the series resumes, because it makes Monday a very special day for lovers of great films and music. RON WYNN
