The Film Museum in Vondelpark shows all kinds of movies from all corners of the world, and has free open-air screenings on summer weekends. For film listings get hold of a Week Agenda from any cinema. The theatre company Toomler, Breitnerstraat 2, offers stand-up comedy in Dutch and English, while Boom Chicago, Leidseplein 12, is a hugely popular rapid-fire comedy troupe, performing nightly in English to crowds of tourists and locals.
