Ideal Cinema

In Charleroi in the Rue Neuve there were two cinemas, the Ideal Cinema at number 84 was opened in 1913, and the nearby Rio Cinema at number 82 which opened in 1955. Both were under the direction of Mr Delange. In the same street there was also the Americain Cinema, and Le Palais du Film which screened third run movies. The leading theatres of Charleroi were the Marignan/Vauban on Boulevard Tirou, the Coliseum Cinema, the Paris Cinema and the Trianon Cinema.

The Ideal Cinema had a programming for adults, mainly horror movies and children were not allowed inside. It should be compared to the Apollo Cinema, Paris Cinema and American Cinema in Brussels. Its neighbour was an all family cinema that should be compared to the Victory Cinema or Filmac, both had two films on each programme, and both are closed, the Ideal Cinema closed in 1977 and the Rio Cinema closed in 1976.
