Movie Thumb

The Mummy (1999)

Perhaps an obscure or even odd pick for this year’s Pride film series at Cinema Capitol, our choice to include 1999’s THE MUMMY is due to the ever-growing online discourse surrounding the film’s influence on Millennials and its status as a source of “sexual awakening” for queer folx.

With so many of the film’s stars at the height of their fame and sexiness, the stunning visuals of the film and the slightly camp re-making of a ’30s monster classic, this film opened the eyes of many and deserves a social screening where this cultural icon can be appreciated fully.

Join us an hour before the film, at 7:00pm, for a SASHAY (sexual awakening social hour and yummies) where we will be discussing the film, its lasting influence and whatever else comes up! Complimentary snacks (yummies) will be provided courtesy of superofficial and the Copper Easel.

In THE MUMMY: an English librarian called Evelyn Carnahan becomes interested in starting an archaeological dig at the ancient city of Hamunaptra. She gains the help of Rick O’Connell, after saving him from his death. What Evelyn, her brother Jonathan and Rick are unaware of is that another group of explorers are interested in the same dig. Unfortunately for everyone, this group ends up unleashing a curse which been laid on the dead High Priest Imhotep. Now ‘The Mummy’ is awake and it’s going to take a lot more than guns to send him back to where he came from.
