Cinema Royale

The Cinema Royale is located a few feet from the entrance to the world famous Antwerp Zoo and the Central Railway Station. Originally opened in 1951 as the Calypso Zoo Cinema with one screen, it was later twinned.

For many years it has screened gay male adult films in screen 1, and ‘straight’ adult films in screen 2. The Cinema Royal was still open in October 2018 with opening hours 10am to 9pm. By August 2020 it had been closed and demolished.

I am pretty sure that when I took a photo of this cinema, about eighteen months to a year ago, it was then out of use and perhaps had been for some time. Can anyone locally confirm?
