Part historic journey and part forensic adventure, Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs follows researchers and explorers as they piece together the archaeological and genetic clues of Egyptian mummies. Through ambitious computer graphics and dramatic reconstructions, the film tells the story of one of the greatest finds in modern history: the late 19th century discovery of a cache of forty mummies, including twelve Kings of Egypt, among them the legendary Rameses the Great.
Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs was filmed by the award-winning team of director Keith Melton (Mystic India, Cirque du Soleil) and director of photography Reed Smoot (Mysteries of Egypt, Mystic India), with original screenplay by Arabella Cecil (Kilimanjaro: to the Roof of Africa). It is produced and distributed by large-format veteran Giant Screen Films (Pulse: a STOMP Odyssey, Michael Jordan to the Max) and co-produced by Gravity Pictures.
The Giant Screen at Millennium Point has the largest cinema screen in the Midlands. The projection system includes twin state-of-the-art Barco 4K digital projectors, paired with industry-leading Dolby Digital 3D technology.
