This year CINEMA GALERIES has taken initiatives to develop and improve the quality of this exceptional place.
The cinema’s renovation that had been initiated three years ago is now complete. In the screening rooms, the acoustic system changes offer a better sound experience.
The bar-restaurant THE TOAST ‘ – a partnership with Point Albert – is now open and welcomes you. By day, try a high-quality croque-monsieur or a good coffee. On weekends, come and try their delicious cocktails!
Chef Arno declines the basic toast in tasty and sophisticated versions : Vegetarian butternut carpaccio and rocket pesto, gourmet bread and brioche or sweet lobster with roasted banana and home-made chocolate.
Toasts are presented as grilled sandwiches or thinly sliced, crispy outside and soft inside. The bread is specially designed by Yves Guns, the baker who customizes food for many Brussels addresses.
It is also a quiet and comfortable place to discuss the movie you just saw around a small snack or a glass of wine.
A magical place
The Art Deco room accommodates around thirty people plus the terrace tables. A large communal table welcomes guests in a warm and soothing space.
Toast has partnered with CINEMA GALERIES and invested the basement of the place. Companies and individuals can organize events, alternating with exhibitions paying tribute to the great names of cinema.
CINEMA GALERIES thus becomes the first cinema in Brussels to offer a high quality kitchen with the possibility to taste Iberian ham cones during the film.
In the meantime, Chef Arno inaugurates the cocktail bar upstairs – led by a professional bartender – to relax before the film, to launch a film critic with a group of friends, or simply to drink a glass.
Toast: Monday to Sunday from 11 to 8pm.
The Cocktail: Thursday to Sunday from 6pm.
