“Tuschinski is an experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

I always say, you have cinemas and you have Tuschinski. The reason for that is that there is actually no cinema that can be compared to the atmosphere and ambiance that is Tuschinski.
It brings back to you the memories of your childhood when going to the cinema was having a great night out. You enter through a huge lobby which is decorated in the way it used to be and once you enter theater 1 your mouth will drop to the floor, it is beautiful and huge.
It really is an experience that you have to see for yourself when you go visit the Netherlands and you want to go see a movie. (just make sure you pick a movie that is playing in theater 1 because the other ones are not in the style of the building)

Sure the screen is not so big and the sound is for the standard of today outdated but when you visit Tuschinski you don't mind that, because it is Tuschinski and you forgive the old lady for that minor detail.

“Slightly dusty Art Deco place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

There is Tuschinski is interesting to visit for its Art Deco interior. But be sure to get into a film in the main theater. The others are average film theaters with nothing special. The nicest decorations are in the entry hal, at which you can also have a look without bying a cinema ticket if you are in a hurry.

“The building is better than any film”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Tuschinski does not have the best sound you can get in Amsterdam, neither the best image. It also doesn't have a good programme of arthouse films, as I'd like to see in a beautiful cinema like this. But the building for itself, decorated in art deco style, is a better experience than any movie you will choose.

If you have the opportunity, see a film in the incredible main room - although its centenary decoration, the seats are new and confortable. But, if you don't have time, just pass through the main door and look around at the reception hall, where you can appreciate the stairs, some of the old furniture and the carpet.

Tuschinski also takes part in festivals, like International Documentary Festival of Amsterdam (IDFA), where you can see more interesting films.

“Lovely theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

A memorable time we had in this beautiful theater. A combination of art and architecture worth praising. You should go for a movie in this theater and you will experience the warmth of this place. Do not miss it.

“What a wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Go to screen one. See whatever's on. What an experience. Loved it. The decoration everywhere - on the ceiling, the walls, outside. It's a testament to Art Deco.
