Along with the main film comes a wider program including a short film, discussion and jazzy times at the foyer / Philiale.

The doors open at 11:00, screening starts at 11:30

IG Hop is pleased to present Burnt Skin, a new event on the banks of the River Danube. Each month this summer, swim and swing out with us at the beautiful Strombad Kritzendorf!

Be sure to bring your Kind und Kegel – and whoever else you can get hold of – as there’ll be more than just dancing.

>> Flex your vocal chords at Speakers’ Corner: sing, chant & rant!
>> Be a DIY DJ: BYO playlists.
>> Or just lie around in the sun, if that’s more in your line.
>> Children are also welcome: there’s a spacious playground near the beach and of course, Speaker’s Corner will be open to them, too.
>> Back by popular demand, our famous temporary Burnt Toast tattoos will make your skin kraul – in a good way!

Or else just take the train: the Schnellbahn 40 will take you straight to Kritzendorf.
