I rarely go to the cinema at home, but on a rainy day in Amsterdam I decided to treat myself with a trip to Tuschinski. Actually, I was so impressed with the beautiful exterior I decided I needed to go inside! Ticket price was in line with anywhere else (and cheaper than the UK) despite the theatre being absolutely beautiful... More

There's not a lot of movie theaters in this world where you'd go to without even caring about the movie, but Tuschinski is definitely one of them. Make sure to buy tickets for 'Zaal 1' (the main theater) and submerge yourself in the beauty of this art deco building. The moment you set foot in this building and its main... More

An utterly beautiful theatre that's been made into a cinema. Would thoroughly recommend watching a film in the main screen. Completely stunning.

We were on,y going there to go see Star Wars, but when we got there we got amazed by the building. It looks just like an old theater where you could go for opera. Really love the place and the movie was amazing!

The most famous movie theater in the Netherlands. The main entrace and the huge theater (hall 1) are exceptional. Unfortunately the whole place looks a bit worn and it needs a good 'update'.

Amazing place. Architectural gem. This is the way to watch a movie in style, the way it used to be. Good seats, nice screen, perfect experience.

I was completely shocked in a positive way with this cinema. A truly masterpiece starting from decoration and ending up with all the modern technologies existing in this area that are used there. Upon entrance you feel yourself back to the old times with all these luxury carpets, doors, decors that they have. At one moment you are really thinking... More

Spent the day and evening walking around Amsterdam with a local and they made sure they showed us this beautiful example of Art Nouveau and Art Deco at the Tuschinski Theater. Although we were not lucky enough to view a film we still spent a little time soaking up the beauty of the building.
