?Abspann? The Filmwochenende Party


Free admission
Saturday, January 30, 2016 at 11:00 pm at Standard (Oberthürstr. 11A)

Let's do the Time Warp again!
Standard (Oberthürstr. 11A) will host this year's festival party on Saturday, January 30, 2016 at 11:00 pm. DJ Farbfilm Ferguson (https://www.facebook.com/farbfilmferguson/?fref=ts) will rock the night with funky soundtracks from legendary B movies, television series, and the best songs of the cult comedy horror musical, "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", from Transsexual Transylvania Movies. Inspired by Dr. Frank N. Furter from Gusto, the chef at Standard curated a special menu for this party that is nothing short of brilliant.  If the music and food aren't enough, pay homage to this classic flick and come in costume. Though not mandatory, it is a great opportunity to don your suspenders and surgical gowns and get revved up for the upcoming Carnival season right around the corner. The talented make-up artists, Nadja Akra and Nicole Madeleyn, will be at the party from 8:00 pm until 11:00 pm (http://nnmaskenbildner.com) to give your face that final glow. Come along and join us because, as you well know, the Master does not like to be kept waiting!
