The now abandoned Cinéma ABC is a heritage site in Brussels, Belgium. This old-style adult cinema on Boulevard Adolph Max opened its doors in the early 1970s and was known for its live striptease acts during the breaks between films.
In the summer of 2013, Cinéma ABC closed its doors and has been left abandoned. It might disappear forever. However, Cinema Nova and Offscreen are currently raising funds to save the cinema.
A few days ago, I managed to get the key and went inside to take photos.
Everything, from the cinema and projection room to the offices, was still intact. We found many 35mm adult films, both trashy and classy ones. Radley Metzger, who accompanied me to the Cinéma ABC, was happy to find one of his own movies, The Opening of Misty Beethoven, among the collection.
In the two bedrooms, where striptease dancers could “rest” in between performances, the walls were papered with adult movie posters.
Anyway, here are the photos of this unforgettable cinema...
