We return to the Pupille, student cinema of Frankfurt University, Campus Bockenheim to watch the opening movie of the season, an American movie called „90s“. It’s a coming-of-age movie of a boy who experiences a big change in his life when starting skateboarding. Get ready for a lot of action and good music. It’s the opening movie of the season, therefore entrance to the cinema is for free. We meet earlier at Cafe Koz (coming from Bockenheimer Warte at the end of the Campus to the right) to have a drink and then go up to the cinema room in the Studentenhaus next door around 8pm. There are a few drinks & cold snacks on offer in the cinema, too. We will try to reserve an area in the cinema for the group, but if you arrive after 8:15 you may have to sit separately. Don’t hesitate to come, though, they will let you in and on a Monday there will be enough seats for everyone. Cu there
The line-up of the opening concert of the Latin American week in Instituto Cervantes is too impressive to miss. Juan Liner y Los Ruisenores from Chile will entertain us with Latin guitars and voices. The Argentinian Quartet In Crescendo interprets Classical and Tango music with 4 acoustic guitars. They already played at last year’s Semana Latinamericana and were so good that I bought their DVD. Entrance to the event is free but donations will be collected. Latin American food & snacks are usually on offer. The main hall in Cervantes is sometimes seated, in that case you find us seated inside. Will post description where we are once there. Desde el evento tiene lugar en Instituto Cervantes, claro que se puede hablar en espanol esa noche, pero no es requerimento para atender el evento.
You are guaranteed to dance in this festival of Latin American music with Rock, Rap, Cumbia and Salsa. Two local favorites, Mate Power and Makia (who were also in the festival line up last year but started near midnight so most people missed them), will rock Instituto Cervantes, together with the third act of the evening, Chilenean guest band Hentrenamiento. The concert will start at 7:30pm and go till at least 11pm, the order of the bands is unknown, but I will post updates during the evening, also where we are (you‘ll find us in the main hall after the concert has started). The official Meetup ends at 10:30pm. Entrance to the event is free but donations will be collected. Latin American food & snacks are usually on offer. We will chat and have drinks & food during the breaks between the bands. Speaking Spanish is not a must to attend the event. Desde el evento tiene lugar en Instituto Cervantes, se va a hablar mucho en espanol esa noche, pero no es requerimento para atender el evento.

Looking for a killer weekend? There’s a fire blazing in the hearth of an English country-side manor, in a secluded garden on a cold night in the heart of the winter. We hear a scream! A murder has taken place… Find yourself transported to the English countryside by the cast of Dangerous Play: Agatha Christie, with authentic British cuisine on offer in the heart of the Rosisten Garden District in Sachsenhausen at Frankfurt Art Bar, Frankfurt am Main. Inspired by the plays of the prolific and popular Queen of Crime Agatha Christie, this fully-improvised murder mystery play is full of laughs and intrigue that will have you on the edge of your seat until the final reveal. Christie wasn’t only interested in whodunit, but created rich characters and stories to discover why people committed heinous crimes, and the effects of the crime on the lives of the vivid characters she created. The actors take suggestions from the audience to create a tale of secrets and scandal right before your eyes. The audience will choose the setting of the play and the murder method as well as the title of the yet unproduced play. Join us for a new work inspired by Dame Agatha that opens and closes all in one night!
