The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

It is well worth visiting Tuschinski theatre if you are in Amsterdam. You can do an audio tour in the mornings but we decided to see a film there. We chose balcony seats which included a drink and snack. This was one of my favourite places I visited in Amsterdam.

Beautiful cinema, great seats and very luxurious feel. There is also a bar in the cinema, and the theatres are very spacious.

One of the most beautiful cinemas that I visited. One of the cinemas within the building has tables connected to each seat and a small lamp on it that is lit before the screening. Once the screening starts the lamps are turned off. You can bring a glass of wine from the cinema's bar and take it with you inside of the screening room. Very romantic little screening room, but this is only one of the screening rooms within Tuschinski.

Whatever film there is on offer, do not mind the film but do mind the building. A perfect example of Art Nouveau/Art Deco and lovingly refurbished.
We are familiar with the Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh and we noticed many elements in the Tuschinski building. Our visit was a feast for our eyes!

Once in a while we visit this theater for the cinema but this time we attended a special program and we had a lot of time to take a good look around. Of course I didn't want to spent the chance for taking pictures of this most beautiful theater in the Netherlands. Every corner has its own beauty, even the restroom. It's mix of Amsterdam School style architecture, Art Deco and Art Nouveau. No other word, just Beautiful!

This is not somewhere we went to watch a film, it is after all a working cinema, we came here for the art and architecture. I don't think many people realise that if you come to the theatre between 10 and 11 o'clock for 10 Euros you can go on an audio tour of this remarkable building, and get a free coffee at the end. If you love Art Nouveau or Art Deco you have to see this place to believe it because it will blow you away.

A beautiful movie theater built in 1921 and now restored to show modern films. The iconic Dutch documentary film “King of the Cruise” just premiered there to a standing ovation!
