I recently visited EYE for the first time and immediately I was 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. At the moment they’re showing all of Woody Allen’s comedies (until the 9th of September) and there is an exhibition on the work of William Kentridge (until the 30th of August). The ferry from Central Station will take you there in only 5 minutes!
