Film, Theatre & Performance
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.
For big productions visit the Tuschinsky, (just around to corner from the Hotel) is 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! The City Theater and the Pathé Arena are both nearby. 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 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 sparkling view of the river Amstel while you enjoy your drink. On the Amstel you can also find the Carré. Originally a circus theatre, it is now Holland's musical Valhalla!
