Boom Chicago’s Theater on the Rozengracht was the first large cinema built in Amsterdam in 1913, almost a decade before Tuschinski.

Behind the scenes, the facilities are modern. The heating, air conditioning and wifi were replaced in 2022. The beer coasters that prop up that one wobbly table are replaced every day.
