   Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History has been officially added to the catalogue at CINEMATEK. This prestigious site is located in the heart of Brussels. According to a press  release from the Belgian Tourist Office:

CINEMATEK is a completely rebuilt film museum; a permanent exhibition space for the Royal Film Archive’s collections. It holds one of the richest film collections in the world. CINEMATEK is more than just a film museum… We screen several films daily, usually surrounding a theme or director, and you are guaranteed at least one silent film projection each day with live piano accompaniment.

     Here’s a link to their official website:



   In an email I received from Maxime Brulein, a co-owner of Two M Films (and a Belgian-born director and producer):

CINEMATEK is one of the most respected movie-restoration institutes in the world. Their biggest fan is none other than Martin Scorcese. 

   The Brussels version of the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, CINEMATEK can be found at Rue Baron Horta 9. When taking a European vacation, why not stop by and visit!

Until next time>                              “never forget”
