Watching a movie at the Tuschinski theater is a movie experience like no other. The main cinema (zaal 1), which really has the looks and feel of a huge old theater, features 'standard' floor seating, but also balcony and loge seats. All are great seats from which to marvel at the theater around. My personal favorite would be the loges,... More

The Theater Tuschinski is the Netherlands' most beautiful cinema and one of the greatest ever erected. It was built in 1921 by Abraham Tuschinski, a Jewish tailor from Poland. Tuschinski was on his way to America in the early-1900’s, when he was waylaid in Rotterdam and ended up building a movie theatre enterprise instead. The building also boasted not only... More

When in Amsterdam, watching a movie at the Tuschinski theater might be one of the best attractions the city holds. It is not frequented by tourists as much as most attractions and the building is stunning both from inside and outside.

On our recent guided tour with OMY Amsterdam, Michael, our guide took us by and through this art deco theater of the 1920’s. It is quite lavish and makes one long to see a movie here simply to enjoy how elegant movie going used to be. The building is flanked by two towers (more gothic than anything else) and it... More

No architecture lovers can resist the charm of this glamorous theater house. Worth watching a movie just to be able to go inside.

This has got to be the grandest cinema I've ever been in. It's like some sort of opera house. Went to see the equaliser starring Denzil Washington. The sound was great, the seats were great , just swerve the popcorn.

This movie theatre build in the 1920's will give you a nice setting for a movie, even if be a contemporary one like "Skyfall". With a December chill and snow flakes in the air, it completes the feeling. And, there are nice restaurants in nearby.

Going to the movies in Amsterdam is a must see experience, especially if the place is the Tuschinski Theater. The place was build in the 20s, opening in 1921, to be precise when a boom on cinema was happening in Holland. Tuschinski was a Polish immigrant that opened other cinemas in Rotterdam and then decided to build this one in... More

This old-fashioned art deco theater is worth visiting for the artistry of the building and its architecture. A 45-minute tour gives the visitor an idea of what going to the movies meant in the 1920's. If you have the time, attend a performance here. It will transport your mind back to a time when going to the movies was really... More

This is such a stunning theater! Definitely go check it out. I was slightly disappointed that I didn't get to take advantage of the balcony seat deal that people have raved about on here because the seats are being renovated. They did not say how long the renovations would take.
