FILM-KARAOKE: “You talkin' to me?” – "Here's looking at you, kid!"

Have you always wanted to slip into the skin of your favourite film hero? Now you have the perfect opportunity to do so: Bildrausch invites you to a special kind of karaoke night. We don’t sing songs, but re-dub film scenes and record the fun. Do you want to say the original lines? Or add a new, much more fitting text? Or maybe even add some snide comments? Everything is allowed and everyone can take part! If you don’t like any of our excerpts, no problem! Just suggest a better idea. The evening will be moderated by the actor Mario Fuchs, and to help add some great atmosphere, the musicians Buddy Casino and Martin Gantenbein will provide a fitting soundscape. The glorious winners will be presented with the ultimate Basel culture package: a festival pass for Bildrausch 2019 as well as with tickets for Stadtkino Basel and Theater Basel. May the force be with you!


Please send your registration to filmkaraoke(at)

Deadline for registration is the May 20th.

The performance will take place on the second of June as from 22:30 hrs on Theaterplatz.


If the weather is bad, the event will be held in the foyer of Theater Basel.
