I absolutely loved this little theater. It's a great change from the massive movie theaters I am used to. The staff are friendly, there is a restaurant that serves alcohol inside, and the seats are comfortable. Awesome experience and I'd certainly come back!

This wonderful neighbourhood cinema has been showing movies on this site for over 100 years, and it shows a variety of interesting films for grown ups, plenty for the English speaker, as all films are shown VO with subtitles, rather than dubbed in German fashion!...More

The cinema has a lovely rustic feel to it, the interior is old fashioned and original. Very nice idea to have a bar inside, it's very cosy.

Cinema in the 'good old fashioned way'. Always a good selection of movies: arthouse and the well known movies. Nice bar, nice restaurant. Good place to sit before and after the movie. Drinks allowed in the cinema itself. Very cosy environment.

Wonderful old theater, I belive it was originally built in 1912 but has been extremely well maintained with lovely plush carpeting and seating, small movie theaters (about 40 seats) so it is quite intimate but really cozy. Nice bar to get a drink or coffee...More

4 small cinemas with up to 12 different films showing during the day. Eat from an interesting menu, or just have a drink beforehand. 10% off if you see a film too. Service excellent, no one rushing you. Mainstream films in English with Dutch subtitles....More

Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
