Kursaal Cinema

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This was the second cinema to be opened in Forest district after the one in Avenue Wielemans Ceupens, the Bercy Cinema which had a lot of name changes, and has now been demolished. Later cinemas in the area were the Roma Cinema in 1933 and the Movy in 1934, which was open under the name Movy Club until the mid-2000’s.

The Kursaal Cinema opened in 1921, and architecture of the cinema is important enough that the front and entrance has been classified by "la Communaute Bruxelloise ", like a few others the Marignan Cinema, Mirano Cinema, Rialto Cinema, and Forum Cinema. The name Kursaal still appears on the facade. It has been converted into apartments.

There were other Kurssal Cinemas in Brussels; on Rue Neuve, a cafe brasserie that give part time cinema shows in the 1910’s. Also other Kursasl’s were in Anderleche(1910-1975), in Schaerbeek(later Roxy Cinema)and Uccle Cinema later Floreal Cinema.
