theatre & film
you'll enjoy your night out
Performance lives in Leeuwarden! For the most astounding theatre performances, or the most side-splitting stand up, or the greatest artists, the Stadsschouwburg De Harmonie is the place to be. The modern performance space has a wonderfully varied rostrum of events. Whilst De Harmonie is the most famous venue, theatre and performance can also be found across the city, on smaller stages, on the street, and even in living rooms!

What could be better than seeing a movie on a drizzly day? For the latest blockbusters, you simply must go to one of the two Leeuwarder cinemas: Pathe Tivoli and Pathe Cinema. If your taste is more in art-house films, the beautiful Slieker Film has a varied schedule of showings, and is located in the Fries Museum.
Located in the middle of the Nieuwstad, the Tivoli is the place for the most famous and big-budget films. Every Tuesday evening, the Tivoli also holds a ‘sneak preview’ evening, where they show the premiere of a surprise film. Pathe Tivoli is located at the Nieuwestad 85-87.
A smaller and more boutique movie experience, this Pathe distinguishes itself from the Tivoli by offering a massively broad range of screenings. Whilst you can catch the latest blockbuster here, this Pathe also shows screenings of cult films- it also hosts theme evenings, and events. Pathe Cinema is located at Nieuwestad 38-42.
Located at the Wilhelminaplein, within the Fries museum, Slieker Film shows atmospheric arthouse films in the arresting surrounds of the pink, blue, or green room. More like attending the theatre than going to the cinema, Slieker Film is a comfortable place to brush up on cinematic culture.
