Twin's Cinema

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened in 1971, in a brand new shopping gallery named "Passage 44". It was sponsored by the Belgian Bank le Credit Communal de Belgique, now the Dexia group, which has its main office nearby in the Boulevard Pacheco, located between the Place Rogier and the Rue Royale. It was also opposite the former Botanical Garden now a cultural ensemble named Botanique, with its concert hall, exhibition center.

This was was a duplex cinema with first run programming of less commercial films. The first film of Jacques Brel as a director"Franz" was shown here. It was one of the cinemas opened in the 1970’s following the massive closing of the suburbians cinemas in that period. But it didn’t have the success expected, and in the 1980’s it was taken over by a Flemish circuit, became a studio and closed around 1985.

Actually saw Blue Collar here in 1979…Brussels pre Kineopolis had many more downtown cinemas and even though this felt like a ghost town at night it showed some offbeat less commercial fare…
