To help celebrate this milestone the 39-minute giant screen blockbuster, Mysteries of Egypt, is being re-released to audiences worldwide in multiple formats and languages including being digitally re-mastered and optimized for the IMAX® GT Laser 4:3 system. 

Mysteries of Egypt transports audiences to a distant time and place by exploring the magnificent architectural feats, awe-inspiring legends and amazing history of the ancient Egyptian civilization. Re-live the discovery of the tomb and its prized possessions including King Tut’s mummy inside a coffin made of gold.
