A well-known theater called De Roma is situated in Borgerhout, Antwerp. The schedule includes performances by the top performers from home and abroad in many genres (pop, rock, jazz, classical, chanson, etc.). De Roma, which first served as a cinema in 1928, carries on this custom by showing movies virtually every week.

De Roma is also very concerned with social issues, which are reflected through film showings, discussions, book presentations, and sociocultural activities.

An extremely big team of volunteers—more than 450—and a small staff of regular employees manage the entire business, which involves more than 400 activities annually. De Roma is funded in part by the city of Antwerp and the Borgerhout neighborhood, and they labor for more than 80% of their income on their own.
