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.
