CINEMATEK

Over a century of cinema under one and the same roof, with daily screenings and live piano accompaniment of silent films.

CINEMATEK? it's a global view of the cinema with five daily film screenings. The cycle looks back at film classics, amateur productions, directors, actors, national theatres and documentaries; all are shown in their present and past retrospective art forms. There is something for everyone from the occasional visitor to the most passionate film fanatic. Films are shown in two well-equipped screening rooms, in their original format and language (normally subtitled in French and Dutch). Silent films are accompanied by live piano music.

A modern exhibition hall has four interactive display units containing rare digitized archive footage. There is an array of historical cinema and film objects, display cases with posters and a reading table of books, magazines and press clippings.
