Theatres in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is the city when it comes to cinema and theatre. Whether you want to see a cabaret show, a Shakespeare play, an American action movie or a cult film, it's all within your easy reach every day, 24 hours a day.

Theater Amsterdam
Theater Amsterdam opened its doors in May 2014. It is located on the IJ Waterfront just outside the city centre.

For big productions visit the Tuschinski, one of the oldest cinemas in Amsterdam. It was built and decorated completely in the art deco style, which makes it worth a visit even without seeing a film!

Amsterdam also has a great number of smaller theatres that mainly focus on non-Hollywood productions.

There is also a lot going on in the field of drama and stage productions. In the Stadsschouwburg at the Leidseplein there is drama and for cabaret De Kleine Komedie is the place to be. A night out at Toomler is a hot tip. Laugh at the jokes of the many stand-up comedians while you enjoy your meal.

Het Muziektheater with the City Hall is part of the Stopera. It hosts dance and opera performances and during the breaks you can enjoy the sparkeling view of the river Amstel while you enjoy your drink. On the Amstel you can also find the Royal Theatre Carré. Originally a circus theatre, it is now Holland's musical Valhalla!
