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

You can see a movie in any cinema, and the movie is an event in itself. Or you can see it in Tuschinski Theater, and the venue also becomes an event! Sadly, our film was not "first run" or "big budget", so it was projected in one of the smaller rooms. But the front of the building, the entry lobby... More

This theatre turned into a cinema gives you a very special experience! You have to go to the grand saal to get the full experience. Go for the balcony ticket for 15€ per person, drinks and snacks are included.

If you are seeing a film, be sure to see it at this landmark theater! Can be crowded and I'm not sure the young appreciate what a jewel this is. A true wonder! Go just to see the main theater 1. Rest are like large screening rooms! It's all about Saal one!

beautiful cinema! We've booked a lodge arrangement and luckily that night the room was half empty, so we had it all to ourselves. The arrangement includes a loveseat for two people, drinks and snacks which are brought to you by a waiter before the performance starts. We'll certainly go back!

A stunning building inside and out. Screen 1 (zaal 1) is the main theatre which looks amazing. Sadly the film we went to see was not in this room and were disappointed to have to sit in a normal, bland looking cinema room. But the seats were comfortable and the rows tiered so I could see (only 5 ft tall,... More
