Lovely people, really friendly with a brilliant, if small, interactive gallery describing the evolution of the moving image. a 3 euro booklet worth buying and several machines where you can play your fill of Belgium archive films.

One might wonder easily which places to visit when one takes a holiday in Belgium. The Film Museum ("Cinematek") should definitely be high on your list. Two screen projectors, one to a small room and one to a bigger room. The small projection room is unique and especially build for the showing of art movies; the bigger, more 'real' cinema room has got everything what a normal cinema has (except popcorn). As if this is not enough spectacle, one should understand that all kinds of movies are being shown here, from horror movies and westerns to underground and modern comedy. Every month there's a nice booklet with information about the movies, inclusive details, all very professionally. It's advisable to arrive an hour before the movie actually begins, so you still have time to shortly visit the museum, with the great collection of film magazines (such as the now famous Cahiers du Cinema) and the magic mirrors and archive pieces of art. If you have a bit more time to spend, pay the guides to explain to you what it all means or to give you a tour. It will expend the capacities of your mind. Friendly people, and LOTS of pictures and posters everywhere. A good alternative is to come when the BIFFF festival takes place, so you can enjoy real zombies walking around and big Hollywood superstars directing you which way to go to meet Death (just kiddin', but what an experience!). Sad thing is that this festival takes place only every three years.. Yet anytime is a perfect time to visit the Film Museum of Brussels. Take the chance and visit this place: you'll thank yourself (and this review of course) afterwards, no doubt about it.

The dingy Brussels Cinematek has been recently renovated: its accommodations are now brandnew and more comfortable. 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 directors and/or actors, special retrospectives, one-off lectures and presentations and multi session courses. A certain segment of its clientele is somewhat frayed along the edges and should be avoided.The rows being rather narrow, to avoid being kicked in the back of your chair for the duration of the movie, it's best to take a seat in the back row.

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...

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

I saw Howards End for only €4 at the (Flagey) Cinematek, and I was just reminded after my visit there to support more independent cinema, especially since they showcase old classics I might've missed for whatever reason. The facility was clean, and Studio 5, where Howards End was screened, intimate.

It's a no-popcorn kind of cinema, which might put the masses off of stopping by, but that's perhaps not a bad thing for people like myself, who flock to cinemas that cater for small crowds. They do serve some coffee and crisps, though, for those who crave a nibble.

Free Wi-Fi is on offer.

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.

This is a 3 screen complex,run it would appear on similar lines to the BIG south bank in London.there is an exhibition of pre cinema machines and also a black room where the originations of the cinema are explained.also you will find books and magazines on tables to read.I spent some time reading a recent issue of sight and sound.it is by no stretch of the imagination a film museum.there is nothing displayed that would have been found in a cinema.I did not visit to see a film,so my responses only relate to items displayed in the foyer

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

Nice cheap cinema (3 euro's). A lot of old movies, so you have to visit the website, before you visit Cinematek. Beautiful, central, good atmosphere.
