When this building was commissioned by Abraham Tuschinski in 1921, it cost of 4 million guilders (€ 25 million at present value). The interior and exterior are a spectacular mix of styles: Amsterdam School, Jugendstil, Art Nouveau and Art Deco - designed by Hijman de Jong. The main auditorium hosts many premieres of Dutch films. It is considered as one... More

We visit this cinema each time we travel to amsterdam because it is so beautiful. The art deco interior and exterior is just wonderful. You can walk in off the street to have a look but if you have a few hours before flying out of amsterdam go to the matinee and enjoy the experience! Just brilliant! Remember that most... More

The exterior architecture of the theater is other worldly...the interior is an eclectic Amsterdam School, Jugendstil, Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles, all beautifully harmonized together... it has to be seen to be believed...you can book "lovers seats" in a private booth to watch movies on the huge screen, and order a bottle of champagne!...this should be on everyone's bucket...

There aren't many cinemas in Europe which can be compared to Tuschinski Theater. TT represents such an interesting mix of styles in architectural terms that just looking at the interior of the cinema could be as excited as watching a movie. Even if you don't decide to buy a ticket just enter the lobby and main hall (could be entered... More

We were on an evening stroll of the city returning from Dam Square to our hotel near the Central Station and suddenly this old and great theater came in our way. Completely surrounded by queues for upcoming shows, seems entry without prior planning seemed next to impossible. A must recommended visit place if you are nearby, would have loved to... More

This cinema is simply gorgeous. The architecture and style of the place are magical and really make you feel like you are about to go into a parallel world: the atmosphere is indescribable.. It's worth visiting even if you are not passionate about cinema but if you are, you'll appreciate better

Happened to pass by the area and The Water Diviner was showing in Zaal1. We booked balcony seats,costs 15euros and came with a drink and popcorn/chips. There were hardly 10 people in the balcony level and it was just as quiet in the stalls. They have a tour of the theatre for 10 euros.

Visiting this Art Deco 'people's palace' is a must for tourists. It is intact and dazzling. But I recommend you take the (paid) guided tour only when the lights are ON! I recently visited and sat in the 'Grote Zaal' to see the movie. Something I have enjoyed doing a few times before. Imagine my surprise to sense movement around... More

I have seen many films in this beautiful theater, but I will not be going back for a while. They have a serious problem with small rodents which they do not expect to get rid off. Last night I had tickets for 'The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' in the great hall number one and seeing many mice running around... More
