Cinema Extraordinaire

Lights, Camera, Action !

Powered by Merel Coebergh on behalf of TENCLUB


Cinema Extraordinaire is a series of late afternoon sundays that will focus on the exploration of extraordinairy movie classics, accompanied by a phenomenal dinner and dessert by GOESTING of chef Florence Droogné.


Interesting subjects and themes are discussed in an aftertalk with film critic and art historians Claire Hoogakker, and Merel Coebergh who will go deeper into the material of life, technique, themes, background and zeitgeist that are getting touched upon in the movie.


On October 7th we start with the first edition of Cinema Extraordinaire with grandmeister Luis Buñuel, director of classics such as Un Chien Andalou, L’age d’Or and the maker of the widely appraised Le Charme Discret de la Bourgeoisie (1973). Le Charme evolves around some half-a-dozen well-to-do metropolitan sophisticates who are forever attempting to meet up for dinner parties and elegant soirees only to find the event ruined by an absent host, some mysterious misunderstanding, or bizarre turn of events.


The movie is confusing, funny and outspoken surrealist which makes it the perfect candidate to launch the Cinema Extraordinaire series. Spend a slow Sunday afternoon at our hearth accompanied by delicious dishes, a good movie and an inspiring aftertalk while the autumn rains pour outside.
