    Cute indie/mainstream movie theater. Always crowded, always very warm inside the cinema halls. Still very cosy for pre-movie drinks. Btw: Online tickets save a lot of time.

    Charming 100 yr old theater in the colorful Jordaan 'hood showcases leading and up-and-coming indie flicks. Nab a glass of wine from the bar and curl up in the cozy lounge pre or post show.

    They don't sell popcorn here so if that's a must for you when going to see a movie, get a bag at Albert Heijn down the street.

    It's an old theatre keeping the decoration. It feels cozy and it takes you back to the past. There are small rooms where you feel like watching a movie in your living room. It is a must go place.

    The place is always packed but the café is nice to sit in between movies. The coffee is decent but nothing spectacular (get that across at Two for Joy). Most fun: hanging out in front of the door.
