Reviewed 17 July 2013

This is a lovely authentic original experience of a cinema, the screens are cute, the decor is original and it has history. Haarlemstraat has a gem. It might not be the easiest place to get to but just go. 1 star less as the food wasn't amazing, nice though.

Going to the movies as in bygone days. Or at least how we would like to think of it. Far removed from the Pathes and IMAXes, a true art house atmosphere. The restaurant serves a set menu in time for your flick. Not the best food, but good if you want the full experience. Otherwise, a drink in the bar will do. Together with Garbo and the gang.

We heard a lot about The Movies and it was recommended by a lot of people.
We had dinner at the restaurant which is part of the complex and it was very nice. Good menu and nice movie type atmosphere.
The movie was also nice and we were able to walk home.

My husband and I live very close to this theatre. It is small, cute and always has a surprisingly large variety of movies coming in and out. We love the decor and restaurant attached. It is all very 1920s. If you are looking for a big screen, sound surround experience - this is not the place. This movie house is perfect for art films, romscoms and movies that don't need the blockbuster experience. Perfect for a date night!

Oldest Cinema of Amsterdam contains only 4 small movie rooms, a bar/lounge and a small restaurant. Unique combination of having diner and go to the movie. Food in the restaurant was not world class, but the atmosphere and the friendly staff overcompensated for it. Lot of people on the Saturday evening. Beautiful cinema that is an absolute "must go".
Interesting to watch a modern 3D movie in such a old cinema.
