As part of the Urban Summer festival in Brussels, Bozar will be screening films in an outside cinema free of charge, and have recently announced the line up of films which will be featured.
1. Urban Summer festival
The Urban Summer festival in Brussels will take place from 21st June to 4th July in the Mont des Arts area of the city, and as part of this Bozar cultural centre will be offering a open-air cinema as well as several special thematic bike rides with artists (Art&Bike Tours) in collaboration with Pro Velo. There will also be food trucks around the Mont des Arts during the festival.
2. Location and entry
The open-air cinema will be free of charge, although it will be necessary to register prior to the event so that the number of people can be kept track of. The screenings will be in the area between the Bozar entrance and the adjacent building, and the audience will be seated on spaced out deck chairs in accordance with social distancing measures.
3. The films
The films will be broadcast throughout June and originate from various countries such as France and America, all with a focus on the general theme of movement, ranging from cycling to dance.
