During the summer in Antwerp, the city supports many festivals, cultural activities, young artists… One of those events is ‘De Zomer Van Antwerpen’ (= the Summer of Antwerp). All over our city you will find bars, exhibitions, shows (sometimes free, sometimes with a ticket) and more, organised by ‘De Zomer Van Antwerpen’.
One of my favourite activities is Cinema Urbana: it’s a free cinema with only non-Hollywood movies. This year, the cinema is located in an old Panama hangar, close to the harbour of Antwerp. Inside the hangar, it is a little like Tomorrowland: the beautiful animation creates a fairytale atmosphere. Big thumbs up for the organisation!
After 45 minutes there is a pause, and free soup is served.
This theme is of this year is: Brother and sister.
FYI: the cinema is located close to the Zomerbar – it is a 2 minute walk away, and a half-hour walk from the city centre.
