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!

You watch them at special locations
What could be better than seeing a movie on a drizzly day? There is no better place to go for a real blockbuster than at the brand new Pathé Leeuwarden. If your taste is more in art-house films, the beautiful Slieker Film has a varied schedule of showings. By the way, the film house is located in the beautiful Fries Museum, so a museum-film combination is also an option!
In 2021, Pathé moved to a brand-new building on Ruiterskwartier. In every theatre, you will find wonderfully comfortable seats and the range of tasty snacks for during the film is huge. From blockbusters to cult movies, here you can watch the hottest movies of the moment. Nice for the risk-takers: you can view the Sneak Preview every Tuesday evening - a preview of a surprise film.
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.
