Why locals love it

Already the sign outside that says which movies are playing tells you what this cinema looks like from the inside. It is the oldest cinema in Amsterdam that is still in use. The cinema is quite tiny: The four halls together offer seats to 400 people. But that is what makes this such a great experience.

Why you should visit it

Go to The Movies for the classic movie evening. The program is in between art house movies and blockbusters. The interior, smell and atmosphere will make a great impression. The quality of the sound may not be what you are used to of other cinemas. But what do you expect from a cinema that is over a hundred years old..

Special tip

You grab a bite before the film in The Movies. They keep in mind when the film starts. And they serve surprisingly good plate for a cinema café.
