CINEMATEK is the new film museum in Brussels: a permanent exhibition space for the Royal Film Archive's collections.
It holds one of the richest film collections in the world.
The CINEMATEK'S contemporary scenography was designed by architects Robbrecht and Daem. Two well-equipped screening rooms can project all formats for silent films and "talkies".
The WUNDERKAMMER, a curiosity cabinet, displays the main stages in the prehistory of the cinema using mechanized objects.
REMIX ZONE presents cinema history through film fragments in the form of installations.
VIEWING SPACE: images permanently illustrating the current film programme.
MOVIALA: Four individual terminals to watch films on demand - READING CORNER ... etc.
The screening rooms
In two extremely comfortable screening rooms, a varied selection of films are shown (with a pianist for silent films) for €3. Places are limited: the Ledoux room has 117 seats and the Plateau room has 29 seats.
You're advised to buy your ticket in advance (site in French or Dutch only). Have you just decided to come at the last minute? See if there are seats left by calling +32 (0)2 551 19 19.
The CINEMATEK opens 30 minutes before the start of film showings.
There is access for disabled people through the main entrance of the Palais des Beaux-Arts, 23 Rue Ravenstein, 1000 Bruxelles.
Free access to the exhibition on the first Sunday of the month from 2.30pm to 10pm.
