Egypt. Valley of the Kings.
It was November 26th 1922 when, after making a small hole in the plaster over an underground doorway, British archaeologist and Egyptologist Howard Carter, first set eyes on the burial chamber in the tomb of the pharaoh Tutankhamun. The room, piled with objects, was still practically intact and would soon become legend.
“Can you see anything?” – asked Lord Carnarvon, amateur archaeologist and the financial backer of the expedition.
“Yes, wonderful things” – said Carter.
To mark the occasion of the Centenary of this revolutionary discovery, TUTANKHAMUN. THE LAST EXHIBITION for the very first time offers cinema goers an amazing opportunity to meet the pharaoh, relive those unique moments on the big screen and have the exclusive chance to see how 150 objects from the treasures of Tutankhamun were moved to the biggest international exhibition ever dedicated to the Golden Boy.
Tutankhamun is a name that has become part of the collective imagination worldwide: for all people it evokes everything that is most imposing and mysterious about Ancient Egypt, its pyramids, the legend of the Pharaoh’s curse. Few people, however, associate his celebrity status with a combination of unique events and the stubbornness of the British archaeologist who discovered the tomb, in the years when methods of mass communication were just beginning to completely revolutionize our lives.
