Movie Night: Er Ist Wieder Da

Mon 9 May, 18:00, V 5161.0267

It has been a while since our last movie night. But this month the Movie Night is back! Just like Adolf Hitler is back in the movie we’ll be watching.

We will start watching the movie at 19:00. Beforehand we are ordering pizza (not at Domino’s). Please send the ActiviTee an e-mail with your order or write it on the list in the CACHE before 17:00. The sign-up list will be available a few days in advance.
