New movies and the most beautiful of cinematic classics. Watch them in the spectacular Eye building on the river IJ. As well as the permanent collection, we also present four major temporary exhibitions per year. NB: Eye reopened on June 1. The permanent presentation will remain temporarily closed and the scavenger hunt and Eye walk video tour are not available for the time being.
The spectacular Eye building, an eye-catcher on the IJ river. Eye presents four major temporary exhibitions per year. The ground floor includes Panorama: a permanent exhibition with the top pieces from the collection of the movie museum and different interactive installations. Panorama displays film-making equipment that marks big moments in the history of cinema including a 35mm Mitchell camera, a mutoscope and a magic lantern. Between them, they display the quest of passionate inventors and visionaries to capture the moving image. You can find answers to questions such as: how did movies use to be made, what did old cinema equipment look like and what technical developments have taken place in the movie industry?
Classics and green screens
Watch the latest movies and the greatest cinematic classics at the cinema, often accompanied by live music, a lecture or a special guest. There’s plenty for children to experience at the Eye, too, from workshops to scavenger hunts and from a video tour to green screen.
