A British expedition goes to Egypt in search of a scroll only to end up unleashing the evil mummy Prince Imhotep. When most people hear this plot they are reminded of the big-budget 1998 film starring Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz. But no, we’re talking about the original 1932 black-and-white version of The Mummy, starring Boris Karloff. 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet.
