Pathé Tuschinski Theater
2 Activities
The Tuschinski Theater was commissioned in 1921 by Abraham Icek Tuschinski. Architect Hijman Louis de Jong designed the interior and exterior in a mix of Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles. The outside with Gaudi-esque reptile-like pointed buttresses and stained glass panels resembles a mythical fortress, while the interiors are meant to mimic a gilded painting. Richly patterned carpets, globe lights, and elaborate murals have been painstakingly restored to match the original designs.A glamorous relic of the days when going to the movies was a “best-dressed” event, the theater shows the latest movies daily, ranging from arthouse films to big-ticket movies. It has 19 cinema screens and room for more than 4,000 moviegoers. Many of the screens are housed in a newer building connected to the original.
