The Cinesur website is particularly confusing this week in the way it lists the screenings of the big new release – Ant-Man and The Wasp. I believe that the following will be in English, but it might be worth checking in advance.

This week’s is:
-The Beguiled – Dir. Sofia Coppola. With Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman. Thu 12th 21:00.
-For fans of the group Muse, there is the opportunity to see a performance from their recent Drones world tour. This will be at 21:00 on Thursday 12th. (Thanks again Doug! -Ed.)
