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 Rijnhaven Round (see the Rijnhaven Round article) and Hotel New York (see the Hotel New York article).
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 Lantaren Venster for the first time, and so did I. There is also a cafe-restaurant with special breakfast-movie or dinner-movie tickets! I found it pretty cool to have breakfast first and then watch a movie on a beautiful Sunday morning.
Together with the jazz mini concerts I think the LanterenVenster is a great place for a night out.
