Ferry at the back of Central Station
For all those who are visiting Amsterdam and asked me about my recommendations, this is a not too shabby place to go see a movie.
You won’t find the regular cinema films being played here, the Eye film museum is actually the Dutch institute for film culture and heritage and is responsible for the Netherlands’ cinematographic heritage, they have an extensive and internationally renowned collection that features 37,000 films, 500,000 photographs and 60,000 film posters.
Expect to see Art house films, old classics and selected new and international movies. The films are often curated within a theme; fashion movies and documentaries, a Marilyn Monroe marathon(free ticket if you dressed up like Marilyn) and what we’re particularly excited about is the upcoming Hayao Miyazaki-programme. (Their sandwiches are quite all right too.)
The building resembles an eye and is designed by Delugan Meissl Associated Architects.
A ferry behind central station (destination Buiksloterweg) takes you to North-Amsterdam for free every 3 minutes.
