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.

    The most beautiful cinema in the world
    This is a stunning cinema in a converted old theatre with gorgeous red velvet seating, both individual and double seats as well as boxes. We paid €25 each for a box, a free snack and drink and a great view of the big screen. Simply one of the best cinemas I have ever been to.

    Beautiful!!!
    I like to come here sometimes for a movie. This building which was opened in 1921 has a façade with a combination of the Art Deco, Jugendstil and the Amsterdams School styles. It is certainly worth taking a quick look inside, for free, just to admire the breathtakingly beautiful foyer, even if one does not actually have the time for a movie✌✌✌

    Unique archetecture and interior design from the golden cinema age
    Of all the things there are to do in Amsterdam, make sure this is on your list. We took the tour and were amazed by the stunning interior, so unique and atmospheric, with a sad history too - note the three brass plaques outside the front entrance. Very friendly staff. Also possibly the best value for a tourist attraction. We returned a day later to watch a film which was very pleasant too.

    An Art Deco Masterpiece
    I grew up in Detroit, MI, which (at one time) had more Art Deco buildings than any other US city; I am attracted to Art Deco, and the Tuschinski theater is a wonderful example of Art Deco and Art Nouveau. The audio tour pointed out highlights and was very helpful with the history of the building. This was one of my favorite spots in Amsterdam.

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.

I’ve watched hundreds of movies in theaters across the world and this is by far the most beautiful I have ever encountered. Each room, wall, chair, and ceiling is ornately decorated with such a wonderful style and character that reminds you of the golden era of early 20th century fine furnishing. Marble staircases lead you to wood furnished rooms and comfortable love seats which make you feel like you’re at home. I don’t know if I’ve ever been more comfortable in a theater and the grand screen in the middle of the theater is a sight to behold. If you’re looking for a place to watch a movie you can’t pass up this experience.

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.

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!

We happened upon this theater by chance when we ate at a local restaurant. Did not even realize it was a theater. The staff was extremely helpful in assisting us to navigate the schedule. The gentleman who helped us even allowed us to change our movie selection/time. The interior of the theater is just amazing and beautifully appointed.
The film was in it's original English with Dutch subtitles. It was extremely comfortable and worth every penny spent.

This is a grand old theatre that is used as a multi plex now but the main theatre 1 and entrance still retain the grand and wonderful Art Deco style. It has been well preserved and renovated. A treasure.
