Okay, so maybe The Mummy (1999) wasn’t really a box-office flop, maybe it did so incredibly well that director Stephen Sommers woke up to a call the day after it was released from Universal to start working on a sequel ASAP. So what! This film and its sequels (let’s not even talk about the 2017 reboot) quickly lost steam after release. Leading to the film falling into a realm of obscurity for years. Until of course, the folks that were raised on this film grew up. It wasn’t until recently that The Mummy has come back into public consciousness. With the help of the Brennaissance (resurgence of love for Brendan Fraser), the realization that this was many folks queer awakenings, and the rediscovery of just how incredible this film is, The Mummy has finally gotten its flowers. We are excited to have this film in Rewind, Be Kind to remind everyone that silly adventure movies have a place in cinema just as much as the personal dramas or biopics do. Long live The Mummy!

Hosting The Mummy here at the Egyptian is a dream come true, and to have director Stephen Sommers here with us is a bit unbelievable. From burning out the VHS, to writing a handwritten letter to Brendan Fraser about how much I loved him (yes I actually did this), and now programming it for my job, talk about a career highlight. Come watch the world's most perfect film with me, the Super Yaki team, and Stephen Sommers on July 27th at the SIFF Egyptian! And yes, I will cry!
