Eye in the skyline

 Last night Mr E and I decided it was high time we checked out the new Eye. We see it from our front window at home, but have been a bit slack making the journey across the river. The Eye is the home of the Film Institute of The Netherlands, the Dutch center for film culture.
 Last night we caught the ferry over from central station and went to watch Hugo in 3D. Which was pretty good. It's a kids movie, but has a lovely story and great graphics, with seeing, especially in 3D.
 The setting is stunning, set on the banks of the river Ij.
 After the movie we had drinks and then dinner on the terrace which was just beautiful. Lovely way to laze away the evening.
 Some shots of the interior. Loved the light fixtures.
 Continuing down the other side of the Eye, to a lovely open park area by the riverbank.
 Watching the sun set over our house.
