A FREE screening of a classic Egyptian film, Among the Ruins, will be held at the Bahrain Fort Museum tomorrow at 7pm as part of a Night of Arabic Classic Films.
The film follows Mona, a university student, who falls in love with her professor Mahmoud, who is also a gifted writer.
Mahmoud proposes to Mona but her mother refuses and marries her off to another man, resulting in her leaving Egypt.
Years later, after she returns to Egypt, Mona visits Mahmoud in hospital where he expresses his love for her as he lies on his deathbed.
Live Bahraini musical performances from the Fijri tradition will also be held at Dar Al Muharraq featuring Ismaeel Dawas Band on Saturday.
Admission to the 8pm show is free. The events are being organised by the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities.
