ART: Dozens of works by Flemish masters such as Rubens, Van Dyck or Jordaens owned by the Antwerp fine arts museum, which is currently closed for renovations, will be on view until late 2016 as they were originally hung -- one above the other right up to the ceiling -- in an old home that once belonged to the city mayor, famed art collector Nicolas Rockox (1560-1640).
CINEMA: Sixteen years after her death in a car crash in Paris, the eagerly awaited biopic "Diana" hits British cinema screens with Anglo-Australian actress Naomi Watts in the title role.

To October 6.
EXHIBITION: Frankfurt's Jewish Museum shines a spotlight on anti-Semitic stereotypes, in particular those linked to wealth and greed. "Jews. Money.

Until October 6.
