Today I’m sharing some unpublished pictures that I found in my laptop. Last summer, Marlon and I went to see a movie at the recently built Eye Film Institute, which opened in April this year. It’s a gorgeous new piece of architecture along the IJ, just a five-minute free ferry ride from Centraal Station.
Ladies and gentlemen, a warm summer evening in Amsterdam. Not kidding. This was back in August, when Little Mango was but a blob in my still (relatively) flat tummy. I think the Clockwork Orange guy was trying to warn me of the imminent disappearance of my waist.
After the Art Deco splendor of the Tuschinski, the bright and shiny Eye is my new favorite place to watch a movie. The ferry ride makes it feel like an excursion, being on the other side of the IJ gives you a different view of the city, and inside it’s all clean whites, dynamic lines and modern geometry.
