The Belcourt Theatre is a nonprofit art house cinema located in Nashville’s Hillsboro/Vanderbilt Village district. Home of the original Grand Ole Opry, this popular establishment attracts approximately 160,000 visitors annually and hosts an abundance of in-person and remote events featuring famous theater and film professionals. The Belcourt first opened in 1925 and has been in almost constant use for 90+ years, with the most recent renovation taking place more than 50 years ago.

In need of preservation and renovation, the Belcourt Theater temporarily closed its doors to undergo major internal and external reconstruction. The project included repairing and reinforcing the building structure, replacing HVAC, electrical, plumbing infrastructure, revamping theater acoustics, adding classroom technology, and enhancing videoconferencing capabilities.
The Belcourt Theater selected Trinity Video Communications as their audio/visual integrator to upgrade and install front of house speakers in the Historic Theater/1925 Hall, provide mics that can be used throughout the facility, and engineer mobile video conferencing capabilities to be used in the theater, as well as in their smaller Conferencing Theater/Classroom.
For the Historic Theater, which still features the original Grand Ole Opry stage, Trinity recommended and installed four JBL Cinema 2-way speakers at the front of the room and four Shure wireless hand-held microphones with 600hz range to be used in the theater, as well as in other areas of the venue. Mobile video conferencing capability was another important requirement for the renovated facility, as the Belcourt uses different spaces for events depending on the expected audience capacity. Trinity met this need with a mobile video conferencing cart that could be used in any room within the building.
Trinity also engineered a presentation solution for the Belcourt’s Conferencing Theater/Classroom, which included a ceiling-mount projector, projection screen, and a Crestron touchscreen control panel at the front podium so presenters have full control of the projector screen display, audio levels, and Blu-ray player.
