Christmas Party at Thalia Cinema
Potluck, great coffee and movies

“Imagine” (covered by Sani – Thank you!)

Do you fancy yummy food and a good movie? Then come to the Thalia cinema on Sunday 11 December! Last year we had a wonderful potluck lunch with food from all over the world and we would love to repeat that! We will bring something homemade and would ask you to become creative and bring something traditional (salty or sweet fingerfood) from your countries that we will mark then with a little description! Kids are welcome too, so grab your sweets and sweethearts and come to our cozy Christmas party at Thalia cinema. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. there is just chatting and eating at the Thalia bar. The bar is open and you can order drinks (we are allowed to bring food, but no drinks for a good reason).

This year there will be music! Sani from Bangladesh is going to bring his guitar and play for us at the bar. Sani is a wonderful musician who gave us this video for our event post :)

Dinner for One, also known as The 90th Birthday (German: Der 90. Geburtstag), is a two-hander comedy sketch written by British author Lauri Wylie for the theatre. German television station Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR) recorded a performance of the piece in 1963, in its original English language, with a short introduction in German. This comedy sketch went on to become the most frequently repeated TV programme ever. This short film is known to everyone in Germany (test it and ask your German friends and colleagues) and we will play it before the actual movie.

The Grand Budapest Hotel is a 2014 comedy film written and directed by Wes Anderson, from a story by Anderson and Hugo Guinness, inspired by the writings of Stefan Zweig.
