The Mummy (1999)

Directed by
Stephen Sommers
Brendan Fraser,
Rachel Weisz,
Arnold Vosloo,
Oded Fehr

Free outdoor 35mm screening in partnership with the Rose Kennedy Greenway.

Rain Date: Thursday,  6/22.

In celebration of the ongoing Brenaissance, the Coolidge presents a special screening of this ‘90s action-blockbuster, co-starring newly minted Academy Award® winner Brendan Fraser alongside Rachel Weisz. Before the film, Brown University Archaeologist and Egyptologist Dr. Laurel Bestock will discuss her own excavation and archaeological field work in Egypt.

Deep in the Egyptian desert, adventurer Rick O’Connell (Fraser) is enlisted by librarian Evelyn (Weisz) and a motley archeological crew to conquer the curse of the living dead — the vengeful reincarnation of the Egyptian priest Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo). Combining the thrills of a rousing adventure with the suspense of the legendary 1932 horror classic, The Mummy is a  true nonstop action epic, filled with dazzling (if dated) visual effects, top-notch acting and superb storytelling. 

About the Speaker

Laurel Bestock is an Associate Professor of Archaeology and Egyptology at Brown University. She received her PhD in Egyptian Archaeology and Art from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. She directs excavations in Egypt at the site of Abydos, where she investigates early kingship. In Sudan, she co-directs excavations at the Egyptian fortress of Uronarti, seeking to understand lifestyles and cultural interactions in a colonial outpost from nearly 4000 years ago. Bestock's recent book, Violence and Power in Ancient Egypt: Images and Ideology before the New Kingdom, examined the making of pictures of violence as a tactic of power in the early Egyptian state.

Screenings will take place at sunset at the Greenway's Wharf District Park (located between Milk Street and Atlantic Avenue in Boston).
