A good if somehow hard to navigate multiplex in a good moviegoing city…lots of good sneak previews and a good mix of mainstream and art house programming

The remodelling was done in 2000 by architect Alberto Cattani in collaboration with Roger Schoreels

When I lived in Brussels in 1979, there were 7 screens along this strip – the Avenue with two screens, the Capitole with four screens and the Acropole a single screen on two levels. The pictures would move into smaller screens as they would play off and there were some connections through a block long arcade.

Caught a pretty good range of pictures there throughout an incredible year working in the Hilton across the way – Who’s Killing the Great Chefs of Europe, La Luna and a reissue of Clockwork Orange in Acropole, Hard Core, Foul Play and several others in Capitole and La Cage aux Folles and The Great Train Robbery in Avenue

This said the new multiplex is a great place to see a movie in the spirit of the UGC Cine Cites in Paris…saw Good Will Hunting and Les Choristes there on a couple of brief trips to Brussels

Brussels still has a decent range of art houses and first run screens for a smallish city, and of course a 25 screen megaplex
Kineopolis just outside of town

This photo doesn’t show the cinema, but does show a remarkable sculpture that is a local landmark at the Porte de Namur. The cinema is likely nearby:
