Amsterdam Hotspots

Our 3 favourite cinemas (and restaurants) in Amsterdam for the perfect winter nights out

We probably all miss summer but winter isn’t so bad because this means the days are getting shorter and colder so there’s only one activity left to do: cinema night! As we’re keen on sharing the best places to eat, sleep and shop in Amsterdam, we’ve also got your back when it comes to cinemas in the city. We’ve combined the two so you know where to watch the best films in town, plus the best places to eat so you won’t get hungry during your favourite film scene.


This is the most recent addition to the list of cinema locations in Amsterdam, located in a former tram depot, where you can find Amsterdam’s indoor food market and numerous restaurants and shops. At their cinema location, you can find a perfect combination of blockbusters and art cinema films.

The Filmhallen
Hannie Dankbaarpassage 12
Amsterdam, the Netherlands

If you’re in for a quick meal then De Hallen is probably not the best place to go. Therefore, we highly recommend the Spaghetteria, where you can enjoy the best fast-meal pasta and spaghetti in town.

Spaghetteria West
Jan Hanzenstraat 32
Amsterdam, the Netherlands

The Movies

If you want to travel in time, this is the best place to get soaked into the world of vintage/old school cinema experiences as this is the oldest cinema in Amsterdam. Designed completely in art deco style including a small restaurant, we can guarantee you’ll be blown away here before the film has even started.

The Movies
Haarlemmerdijk 61
Amsterdam, the Netherlands

As The Movies is located on the Haarlemmerdijk we can guarantee you, there are enough food options to choose from over here. Because you can never go wrong with pizza, you can find the restaurant the Pizzabakkers within walking distance. In for something else? Surprise yourself and visit our favourite restaurant Primi within biking distance.

Van der Hoopstraat 96
Amsterdam, the Netherlands


Located opposite one of the biggest university campuses in Amsterdam, this is certainly a cinema known among the students in town (partly due to its friendly prices). Nevertheless, it has the perfect cosy living room vibes ánd restaurant (with indeed friendly prices too) so certainly not for students only.

Roetersstraat 170
Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Make sure to take your bike because the best restaurants close to the Kriterion must be Beukenplein, here you’ll find some low-key restaurants, such as Maxwell, Bar Bukowski, Thaicoon and Smokin’ Barrels. Enough to choose from!

Bar Bukowski
Oosterpark 10
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
