Old Luxor Theatre Rotterdam

The stylish Luxor theatre is the oldest theatre in the Netherlands and was designed by P. Vermaas. The Luxor Theatre Rotterdam opened in 1917 and was mainly used as a movie theatre during those early years. The Luxor Theatre is one of the few buildings in Rotterdam city centre that survived the Blitz during the 2nd world war. After the war, the theatre was also used for performing arts. Luxor Rotterdam is a charming mid-size theatre and you can feel the rich history when you take a seat in the historic setting.

New Luxor Theatre Rotterdam

Even though the Old Luxor Theatre is pretty and classical, there was a need for a new, modern and bigger theatre in Rotterdam. Therefore the New Luxor Theatre was opened in 2001 but the Old Luxor theatre was never closed. There are still many shows in the theatre and the Old Luxor was currently renovated.

" Small theatre. Was really hot at the end as if the air conditioning didn't work."

" Nice classic venue that's nicely renovated. Not too big, even in the last row you can still see what's happening on stage. However, there's only a single set of bathrooms and the garderobe does not have the best location."

Paulo Jorge Pires

" For a 100 year old theater it still looks very good! Good seats, unless you get to share a love seat with a stranger, good views and acoustics. Modern design in the lobby still feels classic and here and there some original details. One of my favorite theaters."

" Great venue, not to wide that you're to far from the action. Not to big so you're never far away. All the usual extras done well. Will definitely go back."
