Enjoy a monster weekend of outdoor screenings at the Museum, featuring three classic 1950s British films.
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.
