“From the beginning of the movie industry, filmmakers bonded with ancient Egypt,” says Bob Brier (aka Mr. Mummy). This Saturday matinee film series explores that history with an early silent film, the 1932 feature film with Boris Karloff; four Universal Studio follow-ups from the 1940s presented as double features; all four mummy films by Hammer Films in England; an acclaimed Egyptian film; The Mummy from 1999 with Brendan Fraser that kicked off an entirely new series of mummy films; plus two comedies that take a lighter look at mummy life, including an afternoon of family-friendly films for kids and their mummies, daddies and caregivers. Tickets are free for Museum members and $5 for nonmembers.
These films will be screened in the Little Theater.
