Well they have got a Cinema Museum in the heart of Brussels. Visit them to watch some good vintage movies. The tickets are pretty cheap too. I am pretty sure you will enjoy every moment at Cinematek.

Alongside their heavy rotation playlist of some 500 classic talking movies and some 75 silent movies, they propose new art house cinema releases, special screenings in the presence of...More

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......More
