Eye Filmmuseum - dinner location
The only museum for film and the art of the moving image in the Netherlands. An iconic building with spectacular event spaces, in the heart of the film industry.
Eye Filmmuseum in Amsterdam is a treasurer, pioneer and guide in the world of film and the art of the moving image. Eye manages more than 54,000 films from all genres. Eye does not only focus on the past: it also closely the latest developments in film by organizing new acquisitions, programmes, and debates. The iconic building on the IJ – containing four cinemas, two exhibition spaces, an educational studio, a shop and a bar-restaurant – is open daily to anyone interested in film.
For dinners, you can choose from various unique event spaces, each with its own style and character. There are three private rooms with a flexible layout and impressive views, suitable for seated dinners for maximum 70 guests. For maximum 300 guests, Eye can offer walking dinners with high tables. Four times per year, Eye can be rented exclusively. A seated dinner in the Arena (the central area of the museum) is possible for maximum 330 guests, a walking dinner for maximum 900 guests.
Eye is no ordinary event venue. Eye helps you and your guests see differently. We encourage you to look at film, the world, and your event in a different light.

Eye aims to further improve the sustainability of its buildings, activities and operations. We did this by starting the Environmental Policy Plan in 2021. This plan was created by our Green Team and completed in early 2022. Since 2017, Eye has a BREAAM-NL In Use certificate for the museum building with a score of ‘very good’. It is a certification method for making existing utility buildings more sustainable. In addition, Eye participated in the working group for sustainable museums, led by Royal Haskoning (RHDHV). This working group examined what measures are possible to meet the legally required CO2 savings.
Through the thematic series ‘Cinema Ecologica’, Eye addressed the climate crisis in their film programming. Sustainability is also part of Eye’s educational programmes. Furthermore, Eye is trying to reduce its footprint by replacing many printed articles, newsletters, brochures, flyers, and catalogs by digital versions. Eye also selects local suppliers, where possible, to keep transportation to a minimum.
