There are 137 movie theaters and 31 arthouse cinemas in the Netherlands, with a total of ca. 675 screens,[1] in addition to 79 small arthouse cinemas and a number of adult movie theaters. The main movie theater chains in the Netherlands are Pathé, Jogchem's, Wolff Cinema Groep, and Utopia/Utopolis.

Pathé Theatres B.V. is part of the EuroPalaces movie theater chain with 75 movie theaters with 730 screens (2004), mainly in France, which in turn is part of Pathé. Pathé Theatres B.V. operates a chain of theaters (most multiplex) in the Netherlands:

  • Pathé Amersfoort in Amersfoort (8 screens)
  • Pathé Arena in Amsterdam (14 screens)
  • Pathé City in Amsterdam (7 screens)
  • Pathé de Munt in Amsterdam (13 screens)
  • Pathé Tuschinski in Amsterdam (6 screens)
  • Pathé Rembrandt Arnhem in Arnhem (5 screens)
  • Pathé Breda in Breda (7 screens)
  • Pathé Delft in Delft (7 screens)
  • Pathé Buitenhof in The Hague (6 screens)
  • Pathé Scheveningen in The Hague (8 screens)
  • Pathé Spuimarkt in The Hague (9 screens)
  • Pathé Eindhoven in Eindhoven (8 screens)
  • Pathé Groningen in Groningen (9 screens)

The largest theaters are Pathé de Munt in the center of Amsterdam (13 screens), Pathé Arena in Amsterdam-Zuidoost (14 screens), and Pathé de Kuip in Rotterdam (14 screens). A Wolff theater with 18 screens will arise in Utrecht, at the Jaarbeurs-side (westside) of Utrecht Centraal railway station. Using Wolff's definition of a megaplex theater, one having 16 or more screens, it will be the first one in the Netherlands.

Pathé sells the Pathé Unlimited Card (PUC) for unlimited entrance to regular showings at all its Dutch theaters for €19 per month (or €26 per month including 3D and IMAX). The Cineville Pass allows unlimited entrance to regular and part of the special showings at about 25 movie theaters in the Netherlands, in Castricum, Amsterdam, Haarlem, The Hague, Delft, Rotterdam, Dordrecht, Utrecht and Maastricht, for €18.50 per month.[2] The Groninger Filmkaart, for €20 per month, allows unlimited entrance at the two movie theaters MustSee Euroborg (10 screens) and Images (3 screens, Wolff Cinema Groep), both in Groningen. There is also a version for €35 per month, also giving unlimited entrance to any person accompanying the card holder (not more than one per screening). Some Pathé theaters offer live broadcasting of operas and some concerts. Admission prices are two or three times the regular ones.

As of May 2006, in 10 movie theaters 2k digital cinema projection is available for at least part of the screens. For example, for 3 of the 8 screens in Utopolis Almere, with Barco, DP 100 2K projectors (2048x1080 pixels). Distribution of the data may in future be by cable or satellite, but is now by physically transporting a portable harddisk. Since 2007 Pathé Tuschinski and Pathé Buitenhof also sometimes apply digital projection.

There are also six IMAX theaters in the Netherlands, five of which are from Pathé.
