Why locals love it

The Tuschinski was originally a theater, built in the early 20's in the modernist "Amsterdam School" style. Between the Art Nouveau and early Deco periods, the influences are clear with strong eleborate gold decorations, borderline kitsch extravagance of the staircase, dark wood paneled walls and thick dark carpets which lend to the atmosphere.

Why you should visit it

The Amsterdam School is "the other" architectural style you might associate with this city (the first being the typical Dutch Canal house style). There are a few examples dotted through the city, namely Het Schip (the ship) and Sheepvaarthuis, though this is the most centrally located and you can enjoy a good film and Heineken at the same time!

Special tip

Ask which films are playing on the main screen (zaal, meaning room in Dutch) as this is by far the most impressive part and well woth a visit.
