Ciné Noir (Belgium)

Abandoned movie theatre in Belgium. Merely 40 years after its opening, this cinema – which specialized in more artistic films – was forced to close due to a decreasing interest in its non-mainstream programme. Between the modern concrete walls several projectors, film reels and pellicule can still be found.

Piscine S (Belgium)

The layout of this beautiful modernist building was based on an innovative concept: to combine different types of leisure infrastructure – in this case a swimming pool and a theatre – under the same roof. The grand staircase with a curtain wall was once the piece de résistance of this sublime architectural jewel. The ambitious plan however turned out to be less than succesfull; the pool/ theatre had to close, leaving this valuabe part of architectural heritage to decay.
