Information for this tour was contributed by Paul Holterman.
When the theatre opened on October 28, 1921, it had the largest auditorium in the Netherlands, holding over 1200 seats. When it opened the theatre was equipped with a primitive air-conditioning system; large blocks of ice were placed in the ventilation shafts. The Wurlitzer/Strunk organ is currently being restored by the "Nederlandse Orgel Federatie" (the Dutch Organ Federation) and will be operational again for concerts later this year .
