The Sphinx quarter

After the completion of the Muziekgieterij music venue in the former Timmerfabriek and the Brandweerkantine, you could say that the district's abandoned buildings and former factories are being used innovatively for creative entrepreneurs and cutting-edge projects. And don't forget the new Lumière Cinema overlooking 't Bassin, the romantic harbour. 

Lumière Cinema

Since September 2016, the Lumière cinema has been housed in a beautiful new building in the Sphinx quarter. This national monument was built in 1910 and functioned as a power plant for the manufacturing industry in the Sphinx quarter. The original atmosphere of the power plant – now serving as a restaurant and café – has been preserved through the use of original materials and objects. Showing more than 300 films a year, there is plenty to choose from.
