Tuschinski Theatre

Tuschinski is located in the heart of Amsterdam’s characteristic old centre. Trend-setting shopping streets are just around the corner just as cultural tours de force such as the
Royal Palace, “de Munt” Rembrandssquare, Damsquare, City Hall “the Stopera”.
Amsterdam Central Station is 15 minutes away by foot, and it is only a halfhour journey
from there to Schiphol Airport. The Tram stops almost infront off the door.

In 2002, the theatre is back to where Abraham Tuschinski started in 1911. The French
Pathé, which furnished him with the fi rst material and granted him the fi rst licence,
now owns the cinema that bears his name. The Tuschinski theatre is still a household
word of film. Approximately 600.000 people go to watch fi lm there each year, not to
mention thousands who specially visit the theatre to admire its splendour. A function
the theatre has always fulfilled, that of a première theatre, has been preserved.
This can certainly be called a tradition when it comes to James Bond films. The gala
première for the European continent is always held at Tuschinski. However, many other
films have their Dutch, European or world première at Tuschinski. First of all, its ambience
is ideally suited to such festivities. In addition, these are always perfectly organized.
The Tuschinski staff is more than capable of making such major events happen. So it
comes as no surprise that the Tuschinski Theatre is used increasingly often for events, congresses than fi lm screenings. These days, it is the venue for many a conference,
party, fashion show and concert. Television programmes and photograph sessions are
also shot at Tuschinski. All this proves once again that this cinema is multifunctional.
