    We just had to go to the movies after being told about this gorgeous little theatre. Luckily it was just around the corner from our hotel the De L'Europe and near the flower markets.
    We went to a session at 21.30...twilight time....and it was barely dark after the show. We saw a recent version of "Snow White"

    We just loved the decor.....

    There were about 5 movies to choose from.

    A Grand Old Theater

    “The dance is a poem of which each movement is a word.”
    — Margaretha Zelle MacLeod, A.K.A. Mata Hari (1876-1917, a native of Leeuwarden, Friesland, the Netherlands)

    Built in 1921 at a cost of four million guilders, Pathé Tuschinski was designed in a combination of architectural styles by Hijman Louis de Jong. Yet the overall impression is of the Art Deco style. The main auditorium was never meant to serve as only a movie theatre; today, it still has a stage and an organ. It is at this auditorium that first-run movies usually their premiere in the Netherlands.

    During the Second World War, when the Nazis occupied the Netherlands, the theatre was rename Tivoli, to erase its Jewish connection with Abraham Icek Tuschinsk, who had it built.

    From 1998 to 2002 the theatre was renovated to its original grandeur. During this process a new modern-looking wing was added to the old building, access through a corridor. In this new wing three theaters were added.

  • Tuschinski Art Deco theater - Movie in a love seat

    by TitAnik Updated Jul 30, 2008

    Watch a movie in a loveseat at the Tuschinski theater.
    An Art Deco and Amsterdamse school style with Jugendstil and oriental influences.
    Splendid ! Constructed in 1921 and regarded as one of the most beautiful cinemas in Europe.

    For 16€ per person you can watch a movie in the main auditorium in a love seat for 2 persons, with crackers, cheese and wine served. Luxurious.

    In our case, the experience was even greatest than I could imagine! The movie programmed was Mamma mia! and there were a row of fans of Abba who applaused during the film and were singing and even dancing at the end of the film! Unique ambiance! Pure entertainment!

  • Tuschinski's - Cinema with Style

    by Mariajoy Updated Feb 18, 2007

    I saw Road to Perdition and Rabbit Proof Fence here... and it was 6.50E for a ticket. I would have paid that just to look around inside without seeing a film... it is absolutely stunning... this building is one of the best things about Amsterdam... It's interior is breathtaking and must be seen!!

    The cinema has a sad history too... during WWII many Dutch Jews were rounded up and collected here to be sent on their way to the concentration camps.

    Originally built in 1921 by a Polish immigrant, this art deco cinema is a fantastic building and is situated between the Rembrandt and Munt pleins. In 1998 a full restoration of the building commenced which has resulted in the closure of some of the more decrepid theatres and the modernisation of the better ones. The main theatre now has 800 luxurious seats and there is a VIP balcony where champagne is served. There are also 24 Love Seats !!! A bit expensive (16,5€ per person) but a great gift.

    We made a little mistake, we thought they had more than one room in art-deco style, because you could choose between several movies. Only the movie playing in room 1 is in Tuschinski, the rest is in a simple movie theathre, we were very disapointed but after the movie we had a little peak and it is really beautiful. Worth the money !!!!
