" Very nice place to go see a quality movie. No blockbusters here. Very relaxed atmosphere, nice foyer to hang around and have a drink. Small tip: don't buy the wine from the tap, it's not that good."

" Really good movie selection. Downside: uncomfortable chairs - no popcorn? At a movie theater? No popcorn? That's impossible right? Not for this place. The theater does have airco so if your lady gets cold quickly, grab a blanket they provide in the hallways."

" I absolutely love being here. It's such a cool experience being in a cinema in NL. They all have a nice spacious welcome area with a cafeteria, where you can relax a bit before catching on your favourite movie."

" This is a great hotel in a great town. Rotterdam is up-and-coming modern and still has the old feel. The New York hotel is the place where all the people from Europe used to come to sign their papers to go to Ellis Island , America bound!"

" Fabulous, clean, accessible movie theatre, restaurant and coffee shop with great outdoor seating area, views over the Maas towards Fenix Food Factory. Lovely ambience and the best staff I've ever met at an entertainment venue. Would definitely recommend a visit if you're ever in Rotterdam."
