Theater de Roode Bioscoop
This will be our home for the Amsterdam Fringe Festival performances of My Name is: Woman: a wonderfully cozy space in the middle of the city, the Roode Bioscoop is exactly what we wanted for this type of show.
This venue has a long story, dating back more than a century ago: it opened its doors first in 1913 as a movie theater. The owner was politically left oriented and the movies he programmed were following the same line. Interesting perhaps, but not much business successful: the Roode Bioscoop closed down before World War II.
Luckily, its fortunes changed and in a few decades it became a new point of interest for cultural activities. Nowadays, the theater is actually expanding its premises and, with them, its activities.
