Commissioned in 1921 by the Jewish entrepreneur Abraham Icek Tuschinski, the theater was designed by Hijman Louis de Jong. The building combines different artistic styles: Amsterdam School, Art Nouveau and Art Deco, plus Asian influences. In 1940, when it was occupied by Germans, the name Tuschinski was removed from the façade and only German productions were shown in it.
After the liberation on July 29th, 1945, by the end of the World War II, the name “Tuschinski Theater” was put back on the façade. Between 1998 and 2002, the building was renovated in its original style. It was also added a new wing connected to the theatre via a corridor. Tuschinski's main auditorium has served as both a movie theatre and a live performance space since its opening. At present, it hosts many premieres of Dutch films.
