Bring Your Sweater, Film Buffs

Belcourt Theatre

INSTEAD OF:

Fall nights by the fire. We love them, of course, but if you go indoors the chances of freezing are significantly smaller.

WHERE:

The historic independent theatre can be found in Hillsboro Village!

WHY IT’S GREAT:

If you ever went to a movie with your mom as a child, you know: the cinema is a place for sweaters. Most times, no matter what the season, we wish we brought a light cardigan to warm us up in the chilly movie theater air. Belcourt has a particularly awesome lineup at the moment: critically acclaimed audience favorite “Amy” is a groundbreaking documentary about Amy Winehouse, & music fans will also enjoy “Love & Mercy” a biopic about Beach Boys genius Brian Wilson. You can find their schedule here.

INSTEAD OF:

Outdoor cultural offerings that usually involve really cool art and really cool food trucks and really uncertain weather.

WHERE:

In the heart of downtown Nashville.

WHY IT’S GREAT:

It can be easy to forget how well off we are as a city in the cultural department. When you live here, the names of awesome places get filed into the “yeah, I’ll go someday” part of our brains. Seize the day, Nashville! You’ll be out of the summer heat and enjoying some amazing exhibits with a trip to the Frist. Current exhibitions include Viennese postcards pioneered by a group led by Gustav Klimt (who is objectively awesome), Jaume Plensa’s one of a kind sculptures, & Italian Style since 1945. The Frist also hosts tons of musical events & other community gatherings (find their schedule here).

INSTEAD OF:

A hike in cool weather.  It’s still an out-of-the-ordinary fun way to get movin’.

WHERE:

Right by Centennial Park on 25th Ave. North

WHY IT’S GREAT:

Round up the kiddos, take a date, or have a solo skate! You’ll be plenty cool when you join in on a public free skate session. Lace up those skates and hit the ice, whether your skate skills are Preds-worthy or you fall every couple of seconds. The schedule changes, but they’re open on most weekdays! Check it out here.
