    THEATER TUSCHINSKI.....

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Opened in 1921, this theatre is one of the last CINEMA CATHEDRALS in Europe.

    The imposing front towers 26 mtrs. over the city.

    Its style is a mixture of the Amsterdam School, Art Déco and Tuschinski ROCOCO.

    THE SUMPTUOUS AND OVERWHELMINGLY DECORATED HALL IS INVITING EVERYONE TO ATTEND A PERFORMANCE.

    Woven in the carpet is the enormous eagle.

    The main auditorium seats 1,472 and more than 1,600 lightbulbs give the theatre its unique atmosphere and let me tell you that it is GREAT being there.

    Here you see the hall, where on the day if the VT meeting (13th March 2004) we had tea.....just to BE there and feel emerged by the beauty and atmosphere.

    The theatre is uniquely situated in the heart of AMSTERDAM, consists of the GROTE ZAAL (Main auditorium) and has another 5 halls..........it is great to go shopping of to meet friends in Amsterdam and then go to TUSCHINKSI to watch a wonderful movie!

    You can buy tickets at the box office but also online: www.tuschinski.nl which makes things easy!

    You can also buy tickets in advance because there is a events calendar for a whole month...

    Box offices open: daily 12.30 and you can pay cash, or with creditcard Visa, Mastercard and American Express card.

    THERE ARE SPECIAL EVENTS: see calendar via the website you can let them know that you want to receive the monthly "Agenda" online EACH MONTH....

    For 24,95 Euro you can buy the book: " THEATER TUSCHINSKI, RESTAURATIE VAN EEN DROOM" , a MUST for those who love TUSCHINSKI and want to know everything about its restoration.

    MORE NEWS: ask for the special FAMILY TICKET: 25 Euro only for 4 persons, of whom 2 must be younger than 12 years of age.

    In the wonderful hall is a bar and are lovely seats, everything in the special TUSCHINSKI STYLE........and uuuuuuuhhhhhhhhh do go to the ladies- / men's rooms...........these are also in style!

    Its a rainy cold evening... and you've seen enough

    Sometimes you just reach those days on a trip where you just want to zone out... but you feel guilty about staying in the hotel, because afterall, you are on vacation. Why not go to a movie? In particular, why not go to Pathé Tuchinski?

    This is a beautiful movie theatre. You will find that, compared to North America, many of the movies are actually a couple of months behind. But! If "that movie you really meant to see" is playing in the Large Hall, it is worth getting tickets.

    It is possible to buy a beer in movie theatres in the Netherlands. Popcorn comes in two flavors: salty or sweet. Make sure you specify... because the sweet popcorn tastes really strange if you expected salty.

    K/60 Tuschinski cinema

    by ATLC Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you like Art Deco, then this is the place to go. Tuschinski had fled Poland and wanted to emigrate to the US but halfway stayed in The Netherlands.

    At first he opened four cinema's in Rotterdam and then planned to build a cinematographic palace in the capital. The architect Hijman Louis de Jong designed what was called a mondial theatre palace.
    Tuschinski opened its doors in October 1921.

    In the period 1998-2002 it has been completely renovated and, including modern annexes, includes 19 cinema theatres with a total of 4000 seats.

    By this time it was already well into the afternoon. We stopped in a little pub on the corner of Halvemaanstraat and Rembrandtplein.

    The locals seemed to enjoy the loud music.
    For us an opportunity to have a beer and to write postcards to absent VT friends.

    K/57 Rembrandt plein

    This is quite a bad shot of Rembrandtplein. It is surrounded by restaurants and pubs and in the middle is a nice green park. In summer the whole pavements are full with tables and chairs.
    I prefer it above Leidseplein.

    In my restaurant tips I mention Indonesian restaurant Indrapura which is on Rembrandtplein.

    If you ever need to have a meeting point on Rembrandt plein, then Three Sisters is a nice pub/restaurant to make an appointment.

    Utrechtsestraat is a really nice street just off Rembrandtsplein. It has some good restaurants (Pata Negra, Tempo Doeloe) and cafes (De Ooievaar) en interior shops, clothes shops and other interesting stuff.

    The recently-completed multimillion-dollar renovation of the Tuschinski Theatre in Amsterdam is more than just a facelift for one of the world's great movie palaces.
    Acres of art-deco murals, silk wall-hangings and tropical wood inlay, nine hundred art nouveau lamps of stained glass and bronze, furniture designed for the lounges of ocean liners, hand-woven carpeting, and a Wurlitzer theatre organ with ceiling-high pipes : these are just some of the sumptuous features of the phantasy realm of glamour and luxury created by a Jewish tailor from Poland in the heart of Amsterdam in 1921.

    Pay attention to visiting museums. Holland is a country of great artists. One of them, Rembrandt, is especially respected. There is a monument of Rembrandt in the very center of the city. You can see it on this picture.

    This statue can be seen in the Rembrandtsplein area. This area is also popular with tourists and has many cafes with outdoor seating.

    The idea was to lure the visitor into an imaginary world and to enjoy cabaret and cinema accompanied by cinema organ and cinema orchestra.

    This street between Rembrandtplein and Muntplein is crammed with food shops and fast food chains. We found another giant clog to make pictures in.
