Located on the Kop van Zuid, the LantarenVenster stands out from the other theaters in Rotterdam. Lantaren Venster has a very modern interior but with a wide variety of (cult) movies and jazz music, you will get the classic feeling of visiting an old movie theater.
Situated between the classic harbor warehouses, modern flats and the harbor it is typical Rotterdam. In the vicinity you also have the Deliplein and Hotel New York.
The movie theater offers movies which usually don’t show in the more commercial theaters. Every year during the Film Festival Rotterdam a lot of people will visit the LantarenVenster for the first time, as did I. There is also a cafe-restaurant with special breakfast-movie or dinner-movie tickets every first Sunday of the month! I found it pretty cool to have breakfast first and then watch a movie on a beautiful Sunday morning.
Tip: IFFR 2015 (see the article here) started January 21st so only IFFR movies are shown up to February 1st.
