19:00 The Replacements
Prod Year 2000 - It's late in the season; the playoffs are fast approaching; and the Washington Sentinels have just gone on strike. Scrambling for a solution, the Sentinels' owner Edward O'Neil hatches a plan to bring in legendary coach Jimmy McGinty to recruit a team of replacement players in exactly one week. For fans and owners alike, the strike is a disaster. But for Shane Falco and a mismatched crew of outsiders, it is the second chance they've waited their whole lives for.
21:00 Trouble With the Curve
Prod Year 2012 - Clint Eastwood plays an ageing basketball scout who's given one last chance to sign a hotshot young batter before he's put out to graze. However, his eyesight is failing...and rival talent spotter Justin Timberlake looks set to beat him to the deal. It doesn't help that Clint's concerned daughter (Amy Adams) has invited herself along for the ride. Eastwood's longtime producing partner Robert Lorenz makes his directorial debut with this easy-going drama - a nicely taken home run for the old stager.
23:00 Gone Girl
In Carthage, Mo., former New York-based writer Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) and his glamorous wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) present a portrait of a blissful marriage to the public. However, when Amy goes missing on the couple's fifth wedding anniversary, Nick becomes the prime suspect in her disappearance. The resulting police pressure and media frenzy cause the Dunnes' image of a happy union to crumble, leading to tantalizing questions about who Nick and Amy truly are.

The Mainz Wine Market in the Romantic City Park
September 3rd to 6th, 2015
Once a year, during the last week of August and the first weekend in September, anyone and everyone who produces, sells or just enjoys wine in the region takes part in a get-together in Mainz’s Stadtpark (city park). The park, with its beautiful rose garden, is the romantic setting for the largest wine festival in Mainz.
With the family in tow, it's off to the wine market to enjoy extensive celebrations, chatting and tasting. Locals and guests quickly get to know each other during this week - maybe while talking about the typical Rheinhessen wine vocabulary? After all, those who just want to have a small sip after enjoying their Spundekäs', do well to order a Piffche. To empty the 0.1-litre glass takes no longer than a whistle. Those who prefer crafts will enjoy the artists’ market in the Rosengarten (Rose Garden).
