My friend has a Cineville pass and I have a 10x movie card. Love to go to the Movies last minute. Today’s film was great and afterwards we had a coffee and reviewed the movie together. Great afternoon in the most beautiful cinema in Masterdam.

I love old style cinemas way more than big modern ones. The staff on the ticket desk was very friendly and helpful as it was our first time. Comfy seats and many drinks options including a nice herb tea while you watch your movie! Can’t...More

I absolutely love this cinema. A beautiful, old building, nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Even when you're not catching a movie, it's a nice place to just admire the architecture and to grab a drink. It's usually not too busy, unless you're going on Thursday,...More

I absolutely loved this little theater. It's a great change from the massive movie theaters I am used to. The staff are friendly, there is a restaurant that serves alcohol inside, and the seats are comfortable. Awesome experience and I'd certainly come back!

This wonderful neighbourhood cinema has been showing movies on this site for over 100 years, and it shows a variety of interesting films for grown ups, plenty for the English speaker, as all films are shown VO with subtitles, rather than dubbed in German fashion!...More

The cinema has a lovely rustic feel to it, the interior is old fashioned and original. Very nice idea to have a bar inside, it's very cosy.

Cinema in the 'good old fashioned way'. Always a good selection of movies: arthouse and the well known movies. Nice bar, nice restaurant. Good place to sit before and after the movie. Drinks allowed in the cinema itself. Very cosy environment.
