Oh jeez… plan for Christmas already? Absolutely yes! The best days go quickly and your holiday event will be so much better with Boom Chicago! In December and January, we offer special holiday packages for teams and friends for groups of 8 to 300.

Boom Chicago, a partner of Unique Venues of Amsterdam, combines excellent facilities, creativity, humor, and a can-do attitude.

We love special events. Let’s create something spectacular together!

Boom Chicago’s Theatre on the Rozengracht was the first major cinema built in Amsterdam in 1913, almost ten years before Tuschinski. The warm, industrial space has since been transformed into three theaters with a bar and catering facilities. The complex includes dressing rooms, offices, and breakout spaces. Behind the scenes, the facilities are modern. The heating, air conditioning, and wifi were replaced in 2022. The coasters supporting that wobbly table are replaced every day. The main theater accommodates 330 seated and has 500 standing spaces.

The capacity of the theater on the upper floor is 130, and the attic theater accommodates up to 35. The funky bar Boom Chicago features high ceilings, original stained glass windows, and an event space for 15-150 people.
