This is the 3rd Thalia Theater to operate in Rotterdam. The Thalia Bioscope was opened by Abraham Tuschinski on 31st July 1911 at Coolvest 44. On 24th August 1916, Tuschinski opened the second, much larger Thalia Theater at Hoogstraat 325. This was destroyed by bombing on 14th May 1940.

The Thalia Theater #3 was opened on 7th July 1955 with Kirk Douglas in “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”. It was built for the Tuschinski Theatres group of Amsterdam, and was designed by an architectural firm headed by J.P.L. Hendriks, with W. van der Sluys and L.A. van den Bosch. Seating was provided on a single level.

In recent years, it has stopped being a full-time cinema, and is now a nightclub and concert venue, which screens occasional films.
