If you go to Amsterdam you must visit the Tuschinski Theatre. It’s beauty will leave you stunned.
It was built by Abraham Icek Tuschinski, a Polish Jewish immigrant who possessed rare ambition, intelligence and fortitude.
Opening in 1921, its Art Deco interior has been restored to its original beauty whilst at the same time being modernised to incorporate a multiplex within its vast interior. However, these are in separately built parts of the cinema and do not affect the beauty of the original Art Deco cinema.
The moment you enter the foyer you are in another world, a world where a visit to the cinema once meant entering a new dimension of the imagination, where the world outside faded and dreams were king.
This is exactly was Mr Tuschinski wanted!
teddletonmr - Hi, thanks for your comment. I absolutely agree! :)
Impressive architectural design
Hello Mike - Yes, it could qjite easily be missed. I was lucky to be there on the first Sunday of the month when they do this tour. Hope you make it! Thanks for your comment.
Very beautiful building. The experience of paying a visit there should be magnificent. You did provide an excellent presentation with your page. Certainly in my 'to-do' list when I visit Amsterdam.
Hi Katiem2, Thanks so much for your comments - it's beautiful isn't it! :)
I can sense the majesty of this theaters grandeur from the images and the description you offered. Great Article.
Hi Elias - I was so thrilled to see this theatre a couple of weeks ago when I went for a long weekend to Amsterdam. I think it was the high point of the trip. I'm glad you enjoyed my article! Thanks
It's such an amazing building that the experience of being there (the first time at least) overwhelms the experience of viewing a film. Great page, Kathleen.
so glad you like it Mira and Tolovaj - I was lucky to be there by chance on the day they did the tour.
That auditorium looks really good :). Thanks for sharing the story and photos!
