EYE is the only institute in the Netherlands that collects and displays film-related ephemera like photographs, posters, soundtracks, equipment and directors' archives. It's collection spans the entire length of film history from silent films to the newest digital productions. Every year the collection expands as more films, Dutch and foreign, new and old, are added. Called the ‘heart of film’, the huge white spaces covering over 1200m2 provide numerous interactive and educational film projects, while four theatres – each different in size and theme – bring you the latest art-house films and old classics. Many people take the free ferry here for the gorgeous view from its café and outdoor terraces.
