  • they advertise it alot but when you go there they don't have a lot to offer. Their souvenir shop is unit though and you find cool stuff in there. 
  • Is opposite Amsterdam Central station, so access is so much better is not. So you can see the deeper meaning of the videos shown in movies like the casual is recommended. May be worth even going to watch it because it has shaped a unique building.

  • Great modern architecture - it'd be worth a visit already just because of that. They always have something good playing. Nice expositions, too. And besides all that, they host many of the best cinema festivals in the city. Amongst them, the Imagine Film Festival, my personal favorite. Make sure to stop by the gift shop. The restaurant also serves delicious food, that you can enjoy with the great view of the city by the water. Nice local beer options as well
  • Very interesting museum for photography and film lovers! The basement exhibition had green screen, VR and other cool technology that visitors can interact with. You can even record a short video that will be converted into a flipbook! Rotating exhibitions, I loved the collection of old camera and movie posters. Beautiful view looking over the river towards Amsterdam main station.
  • Visited the Close Up exhibition and had a drink in the café afterwards. The exhibition was interesting but not overly so. The café has a great view of the IJ with the Amsterdam central station on the opposite side.
  • Beautiful building and a good place to watch arthouse movies. The lack of comfortfood like popcorn is a big drawback, it's not a cinema but still i'd like to have some popcorn when watching a movie.
  • Perfect spot to run away from the tourist crowd of Amsterdam. There are free boat almost every 10 mins to there and takes around 1-2 mins to cross the river. Cafe menu is quite OK. Good variety of beers.
