At 22:05 Transformers: Age of Extinction When Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), a mechanic and his daughter Tessa (Nicola Peltz) rescue an old banger of a truck they soon realise that is no other than Optimus Prime, they become the target of a bounty hunter from another world, leading -surprise, surprise- to a worldwide battle. The 4th movie of the Transformers saga hasn't received great reviews, but I'd give it a go just to hear Optimus Prime's voice again.

The Fiestas de San Ginés in the capital of Lanzarote start on Thursday 14th August with a full event programme through to Monday 25th.
The poster was designed by Arrecifeño artist and art teacher Santiago Alemán, who created his first San Ginés poster for the capital 25 years ago. This edition features a collage of different scenes from around Arrecife, particularly the Charco de San Ginés.
The capital’s fiesta programme has lots of sporting and cultural events, it’s worth reading through the schedule as there’s some interesting ones. We like the traditional Jolateros racing in small tin boats and the Cucaña which involves climbing a greasy pole balanced off a boat! There’s a classic car exhibition, remote control boat racing, motocross and wheelbarrow races as well.
With two weekends included, there’s plenty of live music events spread across the capital, we’ve attached a map of locations to help you find the venues listed. There’s a big firework display on Monday 25th to mark the end of the fiesta.

Multicines Deiland in Playa Honda:
At the earlier time of 19:40 The Fault in Our Stars continues. Based on John Green's book, it tells the story of Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Gus (Ansel Elgort), two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous given that Hazel's other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they met and fell in love at a cancer support group.
