Le Flagey, the former Maison de la Radio
This gargantuan building in pure Brussels Art Deco style was built in the twenties, to house the first radio studios for the I.N.R. (Institut National de Radiodiffusion), the former name given to the Belgian radio and television company, before this was split into linguistic communities and moved to Boulevard Reyers in Schaerbeek).

It was nearly pulled down before being restored to rediscover its cultural calling, using a complex deal set-up between the communities. Le Flagey has a concert hall with excellent acoustics and a cinema catering for real film buffs, also used for festivals (European Film Festival in April, Spanish and Latin American Cinema in November).
