Located in the Etterbeck district of Brussels on Avenue Eudore Pirmez (known today as Eudore Pirmezlaan). It has a restained Art Deco facade with Egyptian capitals at the top, where also there is the name ‘Roseland’ set into the stonework. The building is actually incorporated into a block of flats and opened as a dual-use venue (‘salle des fetes and cinema) in 1932, designed by architect Arthur Meuleman.

There is the Roseland Ballroom located in the basement (possibly named after the famed ‘Roseland Ballroom’ in Manhattan, New York City) and an Art Deco style cinema on the ground level. Seating in the cinema (known as the Albert Hall) was in stalls and circle.

The cinema closed in 1965 and was empty and unused when the Cinema Theatre Association(UK) visited the building on their tour of Brussels cinemas & theatres in September 1995. All seating and equipement had been removed.

The Roseland Ballroom was still in operation and I believe still operates today and there was talk of the cinema being restored to be used for conferences.
