“Mysteries of Egypt” transports audiences to a distant time and place where the Nile River Valley cuts an emerald swath through the desert sands. With its dedicated team of scientists, “Mysteries of Egypt” explores the magnificent architectural feats, awe-inspiring legends, and amazing history of the ancient Egyptian civilization. Float down the lush Nile and soar over the Valley of the Kings, as stars Omar Sharif and Kate Maberly (“The Secret Garden”) explore the latest discoveries and uncover many of the mysteries that surround these ancient peoples. $100 million in gross box office make this film one of the most successful IMAX films of all time.
