Cinema Cartoon's is cosy cinema with only 3 small rooms. Don't expect the commercial blockbusters over here: here you can watch author movies from all over the world. I also recommend the bar in the basement: a cosy bar, with great music and homemade small dishes. They also organise weekly free concerts by local bands. Great place, I love to... More

In the downtown area you will find this small cinema, presenting filmhouse movies. A small bar underneath, however plenty of other options for a drink and a snack all around. Plus parking garage at 1 minute walking distance. Get a movie in the early afternoon and continue the day by strolling through Antwerp. The best things in life are (almost)... More

The place to see the excellent authors films that do not run in the commercial theatres or see again those excellent films that did not run long enough in the big theatres, to see films with a message or the very best art films.

After having been closed down for a while due to lack of funding, this Antwerp institution and alternative movie aficionados joint is back in business and is doing better than ever. It's tiny and doesn't have enormous food & drinks stands but serves up great movies in an old-school cozy setting instead. Another plus: rarely any long waiting lines!

Was sponsored by 2 dutch people. One of them passed away. It was a nice non commercial movie theatre, that will be missed very much by all lovers of the better movies.

I know this small cinema since about 1978, and it has been refurbished at least two times. It has always been the place for the movie that didn't get picked up by the larger companies because it simply isn't a block-buster. The place for a fantastic but depressing French film about getting old and sick, an asian movie by a... More

Quiet old but cozy cinema. We watched a French movie with Dutch subtitles. Though I don't speak either one of the two languages, I really enjoyed the coziness! No kids or teenagers around, so it can be a good romantic choice as well :)

This movy theatre has the best alternatives to all the commercial block busters you can see at Kinepolis and UGC.
