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.

We battled jet lag the first day to see a movie in the main theatre. It's stubbing -- probably the most beautiful movie theatre I have ever seen. It takes you back to the grandeur of movie palaces of the past.

Stunning 1920s style movie theatre close to Rembrandtplein and Flower Market. Lovely, helpful staff. Get the VIP deal for the main cinema balcony seats - €15 each for film, snack & drink (inc beer or wine). Most films are shown in English with Dutch subtitles. Arrive early to admire the decor before the film starts.

We didn't actually pay to watch a movie here. If we'd had the time I would have loved to check out their loveseats! But we just had to see what this place looked like, it seemed so stunning in pictures! It was just as impressive in real life. You can walk in to the entrance hall and have a look... More

Enjoyed watching a film in Zaal 1: the main theater. Went on a Monday : no need to book, and we got central seats second row of balcony: it was perfect for both viewing the film and admiring the theater. Although a little expensive (15,50 Eur for a balcony seat with drink and snack), we found it worth it.

I loved this theatre but then... I saw mice! We were watching a film in room number 5 and the mice attacked the leftovers of crisps. The mice were so noisy that we could not watch the film plus, of course I got scared and disgusted. I had to keep my legs on the chair and in the end of... More

Decorated entirely in Art Deco style, watching a movie in the main cinema stage (Zaal 1) of the Tuschinski theater is a must-do experience in Amsterdam. If you are a couple, it is well worth upgrading to the front row of the comfortable 'Lounges' area, where a drink an a snack are included. For good seat availability, sure to book... More
