Want a movie night out with a bit of pizzazz? Then head to the Tuschinski Theater on Reguliersbreestraat , one of the most elegant and opulent cinema complexes in the world.
Originally built in 1921, this extraordinary entertainment house is a real sight to behold. Showcasing a mix of gothic and art deco architecture, it is as stunning on the outside as it is on the inside. This Theatre offers you the chance to have a night out at the movies…the way it was always meant to be! Elegant, entertaining and overtly romantic thanks to the comfy love seats.
Initially intended to be a live show venue, the theatre’s interior has a way of transporting you into an artistic illusion, miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.
Considered by many to be more of a cinematic museum, rather than an actual cinema, the Tuschinski is one of Amsterdam’s most popular tourist stes, and most people will visit at least once during their vacation to admire the architecture and old-school atmosphere. While the main auditorium offers mostly movies in Dutch, there are many movie sessions in English, and we highly recommend experiencing a movie night out in this most atmospheric place.
