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. For information, call 713-639-7300 or visit www.mfah.org. $6 to $7.
Fri., Feb. 3, 9 p.m.; Sat., Feb. 4, 9 p.m., 2012
