Oude Luxor Theater

Oude Luxor Theater

The Oude (old) Luxor Theatre on the Kruiskade is located near the Erasmus Bridge, across the Southbank River. Since its design in 1917 by famous architect Pieter Vermaas, the Luxor has been a platform for established cabaret talent, new comedy talents, charming stage productions, and musical concerts since the last 100 years.

Starting as a luxury cinema, it was converted to a theater in 1974 and recently in 2014; a renovation program that restored it to its previous glory. The theater hosts varied performances throughout the year, such as Wim Helsen, Urbanus, and others. During the last few years, the Oude Theater has surpassed the new one in popularity to become the ultimate entertainment theater in the whole of Rotterdam.

The lobby is relatively small, but can still accommodate 909 seats, that compromise 118 “love seats”. These loveseats are cozy, without a middle bar handle. Comfortable legroom and huge spacing, great acoustics, free wardrobe service are some plus points of the theater. Access to the theater by public transport is easy and convenient. However, it would be nice if the place had a bit more restrooms. The theater bar also serves only beer and wine, among the whole lot of alcoholic beverages. Smoking is also strictly prohibited inside the theater. The interiors including light streaks on walls and red, rusty chairs make sure that you get a real sense of antiquated theater experience.

Oude Luxor Theatre may be out of the way a little bit, but it is still close to many bars, decent cafes and a casino for refreshments and meetings. This particular casino, Corso Casino, is located nearby to the Luxor Theater and is a part of the famous casino organization in Holland, Palace Casinos. The newly-opened Corso Casino dwells in a historic building in the center of Kruiskade 22, Rotterdam.

The luxury casino gives an elegant and modern feel with artistic furnishings and a dazzling dance floor. The dance floor is superbly lit and has a loft overlooking the floor. The 7-meter long bar serves beer, cocktails and a variety of snacks. All in all, it provides a very lively atmosphere.

The casino offers an attractive venue with lots of exciting entertainment features both for online and real-time players. Althoght there are many options for selecting from trusted casino on Svenskkasinon directory with its reviews and guides. There is a detailed selection of various slot machines in Corso and all the latest games, an area that encompasses three floors.

Unlike other casinos, the entry is restricted for 18-year olds. Access can be granted only to 21 years and older. You must also carry an ID along with you. One particular amenity that stands out is the wheelchair accessible elevators for specially-able people in Corso Casino.

Overall the old lady theater has been gorgeously remodeled via the exterior and the lobby. The theater experience is still valuable to Rotterdam! The atmosphere still has a bit of the old theater splendor. The Oude Luxor Theater has magnificence embedded in history and you will feel it!
