Damian on Screen in Open Air Cinema Amid Roman Ruins

Queen of the Desert

by MCC Admin | The Courier | August 13, 2021

Algarve will have open air cinema (free) amid Roman ruins. The event runs over three weekends in August. There are films that are suitable for all ages and Queen of the Desert is one of those films chosen.

The Roman Ruins of Milreu in Estoi was chosen as the stage for the film cycle. The best thing about this place besides the Algarve heat is the fact that the cinema sessions are held amid Roman ruins. The initiative is called Cinema nas Ruínas and takes place every Saturday in August.

The Regional Directorate for Culture of the Algarve (DRCALg) states that the main aim of this cycle of films is “to give the public new experiences related to heritage and archeology”. The project is the result of a partnership between DRCAlg and Cinemalua, a cultural association founded in February 2020.

Saturday, August 21st, the film Queen of the Desert, starring Nicole Kidman, James Franco, Damian Lewis and Robert Pattinson was selected to air. The Werner Herzog’s film is an adaptation of a “biographical story” by Georgina Howell.

The sessions start at 9:30 p.m. and are free of charge. To register, all you have to do is send an email to with the film you want to see.

Self-Quarantine with Damian

by Gingersnap | | March 18, 2020

Coronavirus. CoVid-19. Pandemic. Social Distancing. Self-Isolation. Quarantine. Flatten the Curve. Stop the Spread. Stay the F Home. These words and phrases are flooding our everyday lives at home, at work, and as we go down the rabbit hole on social media.

If you’re looking for some escapist TV and movies during self-isolation, we’ve rounded up some of the best Damian-filled films and shows to binge, stream, or watch OnDemand. Let’s get started.

Homeland – Find it on Amazon Prime, Hulu, or Showtime OnDemand. Arguably one of the best television series with masterclass acting and storytelling. CIA officer Carrie Mathison (Clare Danes) fears and US Marine Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis)  is plotting a terrorist attack on America after being turned during his eight years held captive by al-Qaeda. It’s a compelling rollercoaster ride of red herrings, intrigue, politics and subterfuge.
