He Went for a Little Walk: Mummies in the Movies

“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 the 1932 feature film with Boris Karloff (considered by many to be the pinnacle of mummy cinema); four Universal Studio follow-ups from the 1940s presented as double features; all four mummy movies by Hammer Films in England; an acclaimed Egyptian film; The Mummy from 1999 with Brendan Fraser that kicked of 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.

Beverages and snacks will be available in the Museum Cafe. A mummy merchandise giveaway will conclude each screening.

Tickets are FREE for TMA Members and $5 for Nonmembers. Members please remember to reserve your ticket(s) online or stop by the Herrick Lobby information desk to claim your free ticket(s) prior to the screening.
