Note / On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Amsterdam cinema Cineac, the Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam staged an exhibition in the building designed by architect Jan Duiker in Reguliersbreestraat. Van Warmerdam interpreted the jubilee as a party and decided to install dozens of helium balloons, which were fastened to cans of soft drinks with colourful ribbons, in the characteristic glass extension of the old projection room.
