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

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

If your looking for something to do in Amsterdam which is a little bit unusual then visit this old cinema and watch one of the latest films that are out. Me and my girlfriend were passing this place one night and were drawn in by the amazing architecture of the entrance and decided to take a look. We bought two... More

The lobby gives you that feeling of the out-of-this-world cursed beauty. Fairy like mixture of stiles of the painted walls and door handles in the dim light. The staff were nice and kind enough to point out to me that the film I wanted to watch, Elle, was in french so I ended up watching one of the Alice films:(... More

Authentic and nice ambiance. Old and very classic Good for night out. Temperature too high though, a bit too high for feeling comfortable.

I would rate it as highly as the Palau de la Musica Catalana in Barcelona. I fell in love with this building and decided to buy a ticket to watch a film too. The interior of the theatre is breathtaking and unique. Very dark lobby but the main cinema room nicely lit. A 3D film costs 14 EUROS.

If from watching "Pulp fiction" you're wondering if this is a theater you can buy beer in... Yes! But quite a bit more. Art Deco and Art Nouveau in the interior are stunning, bathrooms are definitely worth a trip as well. We watched "Finding Dory" there yesterday in 3D, great all-around experience. Oh, and yes, your seats are listed on... More

The Tuschinski takes your breath away even before entering the sumptuous lobby! The appointments, the carpets, the ceiling, all combine to fascinate and spellbind the observer. We spent half an hour simply roaming the lobby and looking at all the details. The young man behind the concessions counter told my husband that he loves his job - and we could... More
