This past weekend I headed to Amsterdam for a nice day away to celebrate a special occasion. I normally do my movie watching in my own town, but had wanted to go to the Tuschinski theater for a while. The cinema opened in 1921 and still has the same style as it had back then. It’s a mix of styles and looks impressive. This is the entrance:
Which such a grand theater I thought Les Misérables would be the perfect movie to see in such a beautiful place. I was able to buy tickets for love seats in the stalles (where a drink and snack were brought to the seats) and had a great time watching it (still have to write up my thoughts about it). In the world of big multiplexes it’s not often that a cinema itself is as enjoyable to see as a movie and it’s a shame my own town doesn’t have a place like this anymore. One where there are still curtains that open when the movie starts, where you feel like you stepped back in time. It made me wonder:
Are there any old (and beautiful) old cinemas in your town?
