I'm a huge movie buff; going to the cinema is one of my favourite things to do with friends. So what better way to watch a movie than with a glass of wine in your hand? At The Movies the concession stand is a bar, fully stocked with your choice of beer, wine, sodas, even warm drinks! They have a... More

Outside?, it looks usual but when you enter this cinema, it's stunning!. The carpet is elegant, small hall with style. It brings your memory back to the past. This is the first and still in use cinema in the Nehtherlands.

Stumbled across this cinema the other day and took the opportunity to see The Imitation Game (OK film). Great decor inside, sound and film quality was top notch, lovely to watch a film whilst drinking a real beer in a real glass. Enjoyed it so much we are back again (it's raining today) to see The Theory of Everything. Oh,... More

This movie theatre on Haarlemmerstraat dates back to 1912 and is fun to visit. Enjoy a drink in the cosy bar and wait till your film is announced (then take your drink in with you if you've still to finish). The screening rooms are quite small, but sound and picture quality are good. We visited on a Tuesday and the... More

This is the oldest movie theater in all of the Netherlands and it's a perfect place to go for a fun evening! Located right on Haarlemmerstraat in a charming little neighborhood. The theater shows several movies plus there's a great restaurant and a café for wine or a coffee. Inside the theater there are comfy lounge chairs so you can... More

Ok, this place is bit musty, but it's so great to have a cinema with it's character still so intact. A couple of the screening rooms are a bit small, so find out which one your movie is in if this is an issue for you. Jordaan is a great area of Amsterdam, this is another good reason to explore...

The Movies is my new favourite cinema in the heart of Amsterdam. It was recommended from friends and we finally went on Monday. The whole experience was enjoyable from buying a ticket, sitting in the small theatre to enjoy the film and having a relaxed drink afterwards in the bar. The atmosphere is friendly and laid back.

On our honeymoon today, we decided it would be lovely to watch a film (Walter Mitty) in this beautiful old movie house. Unfortunately, the ticket woman was gruff and unwelcoming. We appear to have disturbed her from a conversation with her friend. Luckily the movie and seating almost made if for it. However, not sure we would return as the... More
