EYE – The best cinema

I recently visited EYE for the first time and I was immediately blown away by the beauty of this impressive building. I’m not sure which is more amazing, the inside or the outside. However I do know that the seats in the movie theatre are the most comfortable ever.

EYE is not just a cinema (actually there are only 4 movie theatres), but also a museum with a gigantic collection of movies and everything related to movies. This museum was formerly situated in a beautiful old building in the Vondelpark but moved to the North side of the city, a beautiful location at the waterfront with an amazing view. Therefore it is no surprise that you will also find a bar/restaurant here with a waterfront terrace.

I would recommend visiting EYE either on a sunny day to enjoy the terrace, or on a rainy day to go and explore the film museum. The ferry from Central Station will take you there in only 5 minutes!
