CINEMATEK, the Royal Film Archive of Belgium, located in the heart of Brussels, offers an ideal space for events, conferences and receptions in a building designed by Victor Horta and characterized by austerity, purity and timelessness. Our rooms and our foyer can be rented and are equipped with the latest technology in digital projection, which makes it possible to organize various events such as film screenings or conferences.

Foyer

Capacity: 150 persons.

Located in the heart of Brussels, CINEMATEK offers a space for events, conferences and receptions. In addition to its two projection rooms and its Wunderkammer, a permanent exhibition space for its collections, CINEMATEK offers a prestigious setting for your events with a room of nearly 300m2. Accessible and centrally located, the venue is part of the Palais des Beaux-Arts built in 1920 by Victor Horta in Art Deco style.

Rigour, purity and timelessness characterise the design of Victor Horta. In 2009, CINEMATEK was restored by Robbrecht & Daem, in association with Voet Theuns architects, structuring the space according to a modular principle. The set designers drew inspiration from film lighting techniques. Much more than a simple reception hall, this emblematic place will give your events a poetic and historical dimension.  

We will furnish the foyer according to your needs and recommend our preferred catering service.

The two projection rooms, dedicated to Jacques Ledoux and Joseph Plateau, are equipped with film projection techniques for the main formats of sound and silent films and with equipment that provides all the necessary comfort for holding conferences or presentations.
