Ant Man
From July 30
Ant-Man is a marvel in more than one way. The Marvel comic character is larger than life, but shrunk to the size of an ant to enable him to have super-human strength. Ant-Man Lang manages to protect the secret of his special Ant-Man suit designed by Dr Pym and, of course, in the meantime, saves the world as he battles Yellowjacket, a wasp sized super villain.
Novo Cinema, Medina Centrale, The Pearl area (4418 4736); numerous shopping mall cinemas.

Go to Toro Toro
Open now
The Latin American chain of restaurant has opened at the Marsa Malaz Kempinski and first signs are very promising that the restaurant will add a new dining dimension to the city. With Peruvian, Argentinian, Colombian and other favourites available, and a trendy bar and vibe, this is something a bit different. So grab the bull by the horns and give it a try.
