A free open-air cinema by the Bozar cultural centre in Brussels, will take over the area between the entrance and the adjacent building to broadcast a selection of films throughout June.
The event is free but requires prior registration in order to keep track of numbers. The audience will sit on deck chairs, which will be spaced out to respect social distancing in line with covid measures.
The films – hailing from neighbouring France to America – will focus on the general theme of movement, with topics ranging from cycling to dance.
One listing – La troisième Scène – will play multiple times on different days and features the works of several artists invited by the Opera Garnier of Paris to create original works sharing their new perspective on music, dance, the Paris Opera, its heritage, its jobs, and its venues.
Another film – Les Triplettes de Belleville – is an award-winning musical animation following the adventures of a grandmother searching for her kidnapped grandson.
