The stylish Oude Luxor Theatre is the oldest theatre (1917) in Rotterdam. It still has the charm from the old days so to say. Do you like standup comedian, musicals or concerts? Then you definitely must go to this lovely small theatre in the centre of Rotterdam.
The famous theatre
Everyone in Rotterdam knows the old Luxor theatre. It’s suited at a famous street in the city, called Kruiskade. At the part where the theatre is settled there are many different clubs and its’ always very crowded in the area. Especially in the weekends, when everybody is having a night out.
At the entrance you find a cosy lobby where you can order some nice drinks. At the end of the lobby you will find the old theatre room where the performances are held. This space is fairly broad with 900 seats. The old seats in there are actually very comfortable and there is enough space for your legs. Well I normally think that, because I’m quite small!
Since a couple of years the old Luxor is expanded with a new location at Rotterdam Zuid, called Nieuw (new) Luxor theatre. This one is way bigger and more luxurious than the old one. It’s a bit outside the centre, but easy to reach with the tram or metro. The location (next to the river Maas) is really great and it has the newer and bigger shows. A nice place as well, but not so cosy and nostalgic as the old one.
Please go to the website of the theatre to see which performances are available during your stay in Rotterdam.
Opening hoursAn hour before the show starts, the doors will be open.
Reservations by telephone can be made every day from 13.00 til18.00.
