Each year, KLM unveils a new miniature house to mark its anniversary. This year’s house is a Delftware miniature from the Tuschinski theater in Amsterdam.
This new house arrives just three weeks before the Tuschinski cinema celebrates its centenary. This breathtaking cinema was opened on October 28, 1921 by Polish immigrant Abraham Icek Tuschinski. Together with Hermann Ehrlich and Hermann Gerschtanowitz, Tuschinksi had built a cinema empire in Rotterdam by the time a plot near the Munt in Amsterdam caught his attention.
Fine lines and beautiful stone
The cinema that has emerged here has brought together several architectural styles: the Amsterdam School, the Jugendstil and Art Deco. When it opens, the newspaper Het Vaderland wrote: ?? The monumental facade of the Tuschinski ??, with its fine lines and beautiful stone, belies the play of light that triumphs inside ??. This combination of styles resonates throughout the building in colorful murals and the ambient glow of its ornamental lamps.
Abraham Tuschinski organized gala previews in Rotterdam and Amsterdam, which drew the big international stars of the time. He also introduced the red carpet to the Netherlands. The current owner of the cinema, Pathé, has carried out extensive restoration work on the building, giving it back its unique atmosphere. Earlier this year, the Tuschinski was proclaimed the most beautiful cinema in the world by the British Time Out Magazine.
About KLM miniature houses
KLM has been presenting Delftware miniature houses containing Bols Jenever gin to World Business Class passengers on intercontinental flights since the 1950s. The houses are replicas of special buildings in the Netherlands and are highly sought after collector’s items. Since 1994, the house number has corresponded to the age of KLM, with a new miniature added to the collection each year on the occasion of KLM’s anniversary.
Now that the world is gradually starting to reopen, we are eager to take our clients to special cultural venues, such as the Tuschinski Cinema. Like KLM, the Tuschinski has a long history. The philosophy of Abraham Tuschinski, to create a warm feeling of home and offer customers a memorable experience, is also what KLM stands for. The Tuschinski Theater is a beautiful addition to the KLM collection of miniature houses from Delftware.
