An Amsterdam Movie Palace

I was walking around Amsterdam when I passed this spectacular Art Deco theater! When I later told my Dutchman about it he knew right away which one I was talking about. The Tuschinski opened in 1921 and was owned by Polish immigrant Abraham Icek Tuschinski. Sadly, Tuschinski and his family perished in the Nazi concentration camps, but the theater has continued as a movie palace right up to modern day. It is now a Pathé cinema. The Tuschinski is located near Rembrandtplein, so after you visit the three-dimenstional version of Rembrandt's Nightwatch, don't forget to swing by the theater as well!
