The most beautiful cinema in the world!

We went to watch Bridget Jone's baby, a bit expensive (10,50€ per person) but so worth it! It's very nice inside... you feel very glamorous 20's! Shame on the staff tho, a bit... read more

This beautiful cinema is definitely worth a visit. The walls are elaborately painted, there are gorgeous lights and a great ambience. See a movie in room one to experience the original theatre. The first balcony is best for views and a drink and snack are thrown in with the price. Great night at the movies!

Whenever you're in Amsterdam and you feel like watching a movie, pick this cinema. It's like you're back in the 1930's. The main cinema even has semi-private balconies (so nice). What it was lacking we thought was a good (or let's just call it 'modern') surround sound system. It almost sounded mono.... Visit this establishment for sure though, if only... More

An old family friend of my partners recommend coming here to me as I'm a huge movie buff. I was awe struck as soon as I laid eyes on the place. The whole building is amazing. You feel like you've stepped off the street and back in time to the 20's. This is a must see hidden gem in Holland.... More

What a remarkable building and a reminder of how cinema's could be so much better than the bland Vue, Cineworld, Showcase soulless boxes that we have in the UK. This really is a Cinematic Theatre with plush red seats and genuine character. Add to this that the volume is set so that you can hear it but do not get... More

What makes this structure so unique is its style and the attention to detail. One of the best examples of mix of styles, Amsterdam school, Art nouveau and Art Deco. The theater is designed by Hijman Louis de Jong, and considered as one of the most beautiful in the world. This is a must visit for anyone who likes Art... More

Both exterior and interior of this cinema is museum worthy and photogenic. It is an active cinema so although I didn't have time to watch a film there, wouldn't it be scenic and romantic to do so given enough time? It's also a short walk away from the Rembrandt house museum, and since it's free to look around the entrance,... More

We had a rainy day in Amsterdam and checked out this theater- it was so unique! We saw cafe society which seemed to be the perfect match to this Art Deco styled theater. It was really beautiful and definitely worth the stop- with or without the rain!

Both inside and out - the stone facade strikes you to a standstill while passing and the interior doesn't let up with a barrage of stained glass, tropical hardwoods, handmade carpets, and painted murals. It dates from 1921 and was completely restored in 2002 whilst meticulously preserving the original details. They do tours in the morning for 10 Euros but... More

Simply Put The Place to Be in Amsterdam to watch a movie. One of my favorite places in Amsterdam. Whenever there is a Hollywood style VIP Movie Premiere in Holland, it takes place there. Pick any movie in the main hall (zaal 1) and come early to take pictures of the theater's Art Nouveau interior there. Absolutely fantastic movie theater... More
