Palace Cinema

Opened prior to World War I as the Diamante Cinema, in the city of Wavre, 15 miles from Brussels in the Brabant Wallon district. It was the property of family Steinbeck which also owned in the city a retail shop of records called Radio Secours.

Other cinemas in the town were the Select which closed in 1962 and the Moderne in the Place Bosh, which closed in 1966.

In 1978 the Palace Cinema became a twin-screen cinema when an 84-seat screen was added. It showed first run films. One of the screens was named Diamante. It was later triplexed when the original screen was split in two. It stayed open until 2002, the last film was “Moulin Rouge” with Nicole Kidman. The closure was due the opening of the mega-cinema complex UGC Louvain La Neuve which has already closed, waiting for a re-opening.
