Pathé Tuschinski is a movie theater in the Netherlands, in Amsterdam, originally exploited by Abraham Icek Tuschinski, who had it built in 1921 at a cost of 4 million guilders, in a spectacular mix of styles, as designed by Hijman Louis de Jong: Amsterdam School, Jugendstil, Art Nouveau and Art Deco. The main auditorium is usually the one in which movies premiere in the Netherlands.

The façade, in its own style of Art Deco with oriental influences, was designed to help people get a feeling that they were being led into an illusion. The main auditorium was originally not designed just as a movie theatre and still has a stage and organ, on which performances are still given.

The theatre was not only special in terms of architecture and decoration, but also electrotechnically, with revolutionary heating and ventilation, which kept the temperature even throughout the building.

During the Second World War (1940-1945) the theatre was given the (non-Jewish) name ‘Tivoli’.

From 1998 to 2002 the whole theatre was renovated in its original style. At this time it was also expanded, with a new modern looking wing that is connected to the old building via a corridor. The new wing added 3 extra auditoria to the theatre.
