Close to the skin

Theater de Roode Bioscoop on Amsterdam's Haarlemmerplein is a hundred-year-old, intimate theater where the audience gets close to the artists. The acoustic program is diverse and crosses genres. Expect musical theatre, poetry, jazz, world music, classical music and chansons.


After more than 100 years, the Roode Cinema is showing films again. While enjoying a dinner, beautiful documentaries are shown in the presence of the directors. After the screening there is room for discussion and the evening ends with a visual dessert and drinks at the bar.

The Red Cinema

has the mission to be a sanctuary in Amsterdam with its exceptional history, location and acoustics where new and established talent can experiment on a small scale (the theater has 70 seats) and in freedom. With hospitality as a top priority, we want to share artistic creation processes with the public in an unprecedentedly intimate setting in the heart of Amsterdam.
