The Mummy (1959) - Outdoor screening at British Museum

Here's a rare opportunity to see this British horror classic on the big screen in the unique setting of the British Museum's forecourt.

Ancient Egyptian curses and the awakened dead were popular subjects for film, even before the sensational discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922.

Hammer breathed new life into the story, casting Christopher Lee as Kharis, vengeful guardian of the tomb of Princess Ananka, once again opposite Peter Cushing.

Tickets are £15, and are likely to sell out, so do book in advance!

The film starts at 8pm, and access is from 6:30. Seats are unnumbered, so let's meet at 7pm sharp and go in as a group. The screening will continue in wet weather - see their T&C page for more details.

We will meet up again afterwards and grab a drink nearby.

    Maybe a silly question but there will be seating provided won't there? I know some outdoor screenings don't . . .
