This is a free museum in a cinema, you can find all the technics and machines that built the cinema. It's the first time I see this kind of exhibition inside a cinema. Spend one hour and enjoy

When you stay somewhat longer in Brussels or if you are a movie-lover, go to this movie-museum. They have nice old movies for a low price, right in the city centre. If you only visit Brussels for a couple of days, I wouldn't visit though... Except if it's raining all the time...

I wish all cinemas could be like this. Do check their website before to see what films to check out and times.

Definitely go when in Brussels. Only 3... More

The reputation of this museum is considerable. Apart from its huge collection of old movies, it also organises lectures that are often very interesting. Before going there, check the program on its website : http://www.cinematek.be
