Forget watching Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings movies. As of next week, you can get into the thick of the real thing right here in the capital.This year’s free City of Lions Festival kicks off on October 18 and will run every Thursday for four weeks in Jerusalem’s Old City. The program features a feast of items, all primed to conjure up images of yore, when knights were bold, sat around a circular table and spent their days jousting, fighting fire-breathing dragons and saving damsels in distress.
