1. IMAX – Shaw. IMAX has the capacity to display images of far greater size and resolution than conventional film systems. Since 2002, some have also been partially shot in IMAX. IMAX is the most widely used system for special-venue film presentations. As of June 2016, there were 1,102 IMAX theatres in 69 countries. The desire to increase the visual impact of film has a long history. It quickly fell from use. While impressive, Cinerama was difficult to install. During Expo 67 in Montreal, the National Film Board of the Polar Regions both used multi-projector, multi-screen systems. Each encountered technical difficulties that led them to found a company called "Multiscreen", with a goal of developing a simpler approach. An IMAX 3D theatre also is in operation near the former Expo 67 site at the Montreal Science Centre in the Port of Old Montreal. The first IMAX film, was demonstrated at Expo'70 in Osaka, Japan. The permanent IMAX installation was built at the Cinesphere theatre at Ontario Place in Toronto. It debuted in May 1971, showing North of Superior. The installation is still in place, however, Ontario Place is on hiatus for redevelopment.IMAX – Audiences view a film using 3D glasses.
2. Howard Carter – Howard Carter was an English archaeologist and Egyptologist who became world-famous after discovering the intact tomb of the 18th Dynasty Pharaoh, Tutankhamun in November 1922. Howard Carter was born in the son of Samuel Carter, an artist, Martha Joyce Carter. His father developed Howard's artistic talents. Howard Carter spent much of his childhood with relatives in the Norfolk town of Swaffham, the birthplace of both his parents. Nearby was the mansion of the Amherst family, Didlington Hall, containing a magnificent collection of Egyptian antiques, which sparked Carter's interest in that subject. Although only 17, Carter was innovative in improving the methods of copying decoration. In 1892, he worked at Amarna, the capital founded by the pharaoh Akhenaten. From 1894 to 1899, he worked at Deir el-Bahari where he recorded the wall reliefs in the temple of Hatshepsut. In 1899, Carter was appointed to the position of Chief Inspector of the Egyptian Antiquities Service. He supervised a number of excavations at Thebes. In 1904, he was transferred to the Inspectorate of Lower Egypt. The Antiquities Service also provided funding for Carter to head his own excavation projects. Carter sided with the Egyptian personnel. After three hard years for Carter, Lord Carnarvon employed him to supervise Carnarvon's Egyptian excavations in the Valley of the Kings. The intention of Gaston Maspero, who introduced the two, was to ensure that Howard Carter imposed archaeological methods and systems of recording.Howard Carter – Howard Carter
3. Tutankhamun – Tutankhamun was an Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th dynasty, during the period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom or sometimes the New Empire Period. He has since his discovery been colloquially referred to as King Tut. His original name, Tutankhaten, means "Living Image of Aten", while Tutankhamun means "Living Image of Amun". The 1922 discovery by Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon of Tutankhamun's nearly intact tomb received worldwide press coverage. It sparked a renewed public interest in ancient Egypt, for which Tutankhamun's mask, now in the Egyptian Museum, remains the popular symbol. Exhibits of artifacts from his tomb have toured the world. In February 2010, the results of DNA tests confirmed that he was the son of Akhenaten. His mother was Akhenaten's sister and wife, whose name is unknown but whose remains are positively identified as "The Younger Lady" mummy found in KV35. The "mysterious" deaths of a few of those who excavated Tutankhamun's tomb has been popularly attributed to the curse of the pharaohs. Tutankhamun was the son of Akhenaten and one of Akhenaten's sisters, or possibly one of his cousins. As a prince, he was known as Tutankhaten. He ascended at the age of ten, taking the Nebkheperure. His wet nurse was a woman called Maia, known from her tomb at Saqqara. His teacher was most likely Sennedjem. When he became king, he married his half-sister, Ankhesenpaaten, who later changed her name to Ankhesenamun.Tutankhamun – Mask of Tutankhamun's mummy, the popular icon for ancient Egypt at The Egyptian Museum.
4. Omar Sharif – Omar Sharif was an Egyptian actor. Sharif is best known for his appearances in both British and American productions. His films included Lawrence of Arabia, Funny Girl. Sharif was nominated for an Academy Award. Sharif won a César Award. Sharif, who spoke Arabic, English, Greek, French, Portuguese and Italian fluently, was often cast as a foreigner of some sort. He bridled at travel restrictions imposed during the reign of Egypt's dictator Colonel Gamal Abdel Nasser, leading to self-exile in Europe. The estrangement led from his wife, the iconic Egyptian actress Faten Hamama. Sharif had converted to Islam in order to marry her. At one time ranked among the world's top contract bridge players. His family moved to Cairo when he was four. Egypt's King Farouk was a regular visitor prior to his deposition in 1952. In his youth, he studied at Cairo, where he showed a talent for languages. Sharif later graduated with a degree in mathematics and physics. Sharif then worked before studying acting at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London.Omar Sharif – Sharif in 1963
5. Julian Curry – Julian Curry is an English actor best known for playing Claude Erskine-Browne in ITV's comedy-drama Rumpole of the Bailey.

6. Internet Movie Database – Actors and crew can post their own résumé and upload photos of themselves for a yearly fee. U.S. users can view over 6,000 movies and television shows from various independent filmmakers. In 1998 it became a subsidiary of Amazon.com, who were then able to use it for selling videotapes. As of December 2016, IMDb has million personalities in its database, as well as 70 million registered users. It is ranked 58 in Alexa Top Global sites ranking. The site enables registered users to submit new material and edits to existing entries. There is also much fancruft, including chat boards for every personality well as general subject matter such as politics and religion. IMDb originated with a Usenet posting by British film programmer Col Needham entitled "Those Eyes", about actresses with beautiful eyes. Others with similar interests soon responded with additions or different lists of their own. The goal of the participants now was to make the lists as inclusive as possible. By late 1990, the lists included series correlated with actors and actresses appearing therein. Entire new sections were added. Other demographic data, full production crews, uncredited performers were also added as the site grew. Needham's group allowed some advertising to support ongoing operations of the site, including the hiring of full-time paid data managers. All the primary staff came from the burgeoning computer industry and/or training schools and did not have extensive expertise in visual media.Internet Movie Database – Internet Movie Database (IMDb)
7. Akhenaten – Akhenaten tried to bring about a departure from traditional religion, yet in the end it would not be accepted. After his death, his name was not to be included in the king lists. DNA analysis has determined that the man buried in KV55 is the father of King Tutankhamun, but its identification as Akhenaten has been questioned. The future Akhenaten was a younger son of Amenhotep III and Chief Queen Tiye. There is much controversy around whether Amenhotep IV succeeded to the throne on the death of his father Amenhotep III or whether there was a coregency. In February 2014, the Egyptian Ministry for Antiquities announced what it called conclusive evidence that Akhenaten shared power with his father for at least 8 years. The evidence came from the inscriptions found in the Luxor tomb of Vizier Amenhotep-Huy. A team of Spanish archeologists have been working at this tomb. There he started a program. He decorated the southern entrance to the precincts of the temple of Amun-Re with scenes of his worshiping Re-Harakhti. He soon decreed the construction of a temple dedicated to the Aten in Eastern Karnak. This Temple of Amenhotep IV was called the Gempaaten. The Gempaaten consisted of a series including a structure called the Hwt Benben, dedicated to Queen Nefertiti. Aten temples constructed during this time include the Rud-menu and the Teni-menu which may have been constructed near the Ninth Pylon. The king appears as Amenhotep IV in the tombs of some of the nobles in Thebes: the tomb of Parennefer.Akhenaten – Statue of Akhenaten in the early Amarna style.
8. The Younger Lady – Through recent DNA tests this mummy has been identified as a daughter of Pharaoh Amenhotep III and Queen Tiye. The mummy also currently resides in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. All were found together, unidentified in a small antechamber of the tomb. All three mummies had been extensively damaged by ancient tomb robbers. There has been much speculation as to the identity of the Younger Lady mummy. Upon finding the mummy, Victor Loret initially had believed it be that of a young man as the mummy's head had been shaved. Recently, mitochondrial DNA testing have shown conclusively that the mummy is that of a female and, that she was the mother of Tutankhamun. The theory goes that Meritaten married Smenkhare, believed to be her uncle, thereby making a maternal grandson of Akhenaten. There is one problem with this theory. Meritaten must be her mother Thuya, as the younger lady's mitochondrial DNA fits with her being Tiye's daughter. If Meritaten is the younger lady, Nefertiti must be a mitochondrial relation of Thuya. It has been suggested that, indeed, the Younger Lady is Nefertiti, as incest was not uncommon. This would mean that he and Nefertiti are the parents of Tutankhamun. All this should be mentioned as a further plausible scenario. Grafton Elliot Smith provided an extensive description of the mummy in his survey of the royal mummies at the beginning of the twentieth century.The Younger Lady – Discovery
9. Ankhesenamun – Ankhesenamun was a queen of the Eighteenth Dynasty of Egypt. The change in her name reflects the changes in Ancient Egyptian religion during her lifetime after her father's death. Her youth is well documented in the ancient reliefs and paintings of the reign of her parents. He possibly made his wife his co-regent and had his family portrayed in a realistic style in all official artwork. Ankhesenamun was definitely married to one king; she was the Great Royal Wife of Pharaoh Tutankhamun. It is also possible that she was briefly married to Tutankhamun's successor, Ay, believed by some to be her maternal grandfather. Recent DNA tests released in February 2010 have also speculated that one of two late 18th dynasty queens buried in KV21 could be her mummy. Both mummies are thought, because of DNA, to be members of the ruling house. Ankhesenpaaten was born in a time when Egypt was in the midst of an unprecedented religious revolution. Her father had abandoned the old deities of Egypt of the Aten characterised as the sun's disc. She probably grew up in her father's new city of Akhetaten. The three eldest daughters -- Ankhesenpaaten -- became the "Senior Princesses" and participated in many functions of the government and religion. Her birthdate is not known. She is believed to have been married first to her own father. This was not unusual for Egyptian royal families.Ankhesenamun – Discovery
10. Amenhotep III – Amenhotep III also known as Amenhotep the Magnificent was the ninth pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty. Amenhotep III was the son of Thutmose by a minor Mutemwiya. His reign was a period of artistic splendour, when Egypt reached the peak of its artistic and international power. A minor wife Mutemwiya, Amenhotep was born around 1388 BC. He was a member of the Thutmosid family that had ruled Egypt for almost 150 years since the reign of Thutmose I. Amenhotep III was the father of two sons with his Great Royal Wife Tiye. Their first son, Crown Prince Thutmose, predeceased his father and their second son, Amenhotep IV, later known as Akhenaten, ultimately succeeded Amenhotep III to the throne. Amenhotep III also may have been the father of a third child -- briefly ruled Egypt as pharaoh. Amenhotep III and Tiye may also have had four daughters: Nebetah. They appear frequently during the reign of their father and also are represented by smaller objects -- with the exception of Nebetah. Nebetah is attested once in the known historical records on a colossal limestone group of statues from Medinet Habu. Amenhotep III elevated two of his four daughters -- Sitamun and Isis -- during the last decade of his reign. Hence, Amenhotep III's marriage to his two daughters should not be considered unlikely based on contemporary views of marriage. Amenhotep III is known to have married several foreign women: the daughter of Shuttarna II of Mitanni, in the tenth year of his reign. Tadukhepa, the daughter of his ally Tushratta of Mitanni, Around Year 36 of his reign.Amenhotep III – Colossal statue of Amenhotep III
11. George Herbert, 5th Earl of Carnarvon – Aubrey Herbert was his half-brother. He was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge. In 1902, he established Highclere Stud to breed thoroughbred racehorses. In 1905, he was appointed one of the Stewards at the new Newbury Racecourse. His family has maintained the connection ever since. The 7th Earl, was racing manager to Queen Elizabeth II from 1969, one of the Queen's closest friends. Lord Carnarvon was an amateur Egyptologist, undertaking in 1907 to sponsor the excavation of nobles' tombs in Deir el-Bahri. Howard Carter joined him in the excavations. It is now established that it was Gaston Maspero, then Director of the Antiquities Department, who proposed Carter to Lord Carnarvon. He received in 1914 the concession to dig in replacement of Theodore Davis who had resigned. In 1922, Howard Carter together opened the tomb of Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings, exposing treasures unsurpassed in the history of archaeology. Lord Carnarvon married Almina Victoria Maria Alexandra Wombwell, illegitimate daughter of millionaire banker Alfred de Rothschild, on 26 June 1895. They had two children: 6th Earl of Carnarvon, who married Anne Catherine Tredick Wendell and had one son, the 7th. Earl and a daughter. They divorced to 1947, he was married to actress/dancer Tilly Losch.George Herbert, 5th Earl of Carnarvon – Lord Carnarvon, who was the chief financial backer on many of Howard Carter 's Egyptian excavations.
12. KV62 – Tutankhamun's tomb had been entered not long after he was buried and well before Carter's discovery. The outermost doors of the shrines enclosing the king's nested coffins were unsealed, though the inner two shrines sealed. Erroneously assuming that this site, numbered finally as KV54, was Tutankhamun's complete tomb, Davis concluded the dig. But Davis was to be proven spectacularly wrong. The British Egyptologist Howard Carter hired a crew to help him excavate at the site of KV62. Carter went back to a line of huts that he had abandoned a few seasons earlier. After clearance of the huts and rock beneath, they found a stone step cut into the bedrock. A flight of steps was partially uncovered, leading to the top of a mud-plastered doorway stamped with called cartouches. The excavators cleared the stairway completely, which allowed clearer seals lower down on the door to be read, seals bearing the name of Tutankhamun. However, further examination showed that the door blocking had been resealed on at least two occasions. At the end of the tunnel was a second sealed door, breached and re-sealed in antiquity. Carter then used a candle to check for foul gases, before looking inside. The first step to the stairs was found on November 1922. The following day saw the exposure of a complete staircase. The end of November saw access to the discovery of the annex, then the burial chamber and treasury.KV62 – The wall decorations in KV62's burial chamber are modest in comparison with other royal tombs found in the Valley of the Kings.
13. Tutankhamun's mummy – His chamber was found in the Valley of the Kings in the Theban Necropolis in 1922, but was not opened until a year later. It would be another two years before its famous death mask were discovered inside the tomb. Tutankhamun was the 11th pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty of the New Kingdom of Egypt, making his mummy over 3,300 years old. The discovery of the tomb as a whole was one of the most famous archeological discoveries in modern times. Tutankhamun was the 11th pharaoh during the 18th Dynasty of the New Kingdom; however, the exact dates of his reign are not clear. An educated estimate is that he ruled from about 1355-1346 BCE. After an initial examination of the 3,300-year-old mummy, it was estimated that Tutankhamun was a teenager of approximately 17–19 years of age when he died. Since it was believed that Tutankhamun became king as child no more than ten years old, many refer as the "Boy-King" or "Child-King." Following the discovery of Tutankhamun's mummy, much debate has arisen as to his exact cause of death. This has led to medical studies and procedures performed on his remains, right up to the 2010s. He was possibly in a chariot accident or suffered a blow to the head. An archeologist contemporary with Carter, discovered pottery with Tutankhamun's name a short distance from where Carter would on November 4, 1922 discover KV62. Most of the tombs were broken into and either robbed or damaged. Once they could finally begin to examine the actual corpse, they began to make anatomical notes on the body. He was determined to have been approximately 5 feet, 6 inches and to have had a slight build with a slightly curved spine.Tutankhamun's mummy – Tutankhamun's mummy
14. Lotus chalice – The Lotus chalice or Alabaster chalice, called the Wishing Cup by Howard Carter, derives from the tomb of the Ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun. The object received the is now on display in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, with the inventory number JE 67465. The lotus chalice was one of the first objects which his excavators found on entering the tomb. The vessel was directly behind the entrance of the corridor to the antechamber, where they broke in, on the ground. This was not its original position. The lotus chalice is made from a single piece of alabaster. The chalice has the shape of a lotus in full bloom. In each hand Heh holds a rib with notches for counting the years and a tadpole sitting on a shen ring below each one. A kneeling image of the god was the hieroglyph for the number "million". The same motif is found from the tomb. For example, wooden stool. At the upper end of each rib there is an ankh symbol, the sign of life. The chalice therefore symbolises the eternal life of King Tutankhamun. The name of the king in the centre of the open flower therefore symbolised his rebirth. The inscriptions are filled with dark paste.Lotus chalice – Lotus chalice replica
15. Anubis Shrine – The Anubis Shrine was part of the grave gods of Tutankhamun. The tomb was discovered almost intact on 4 November 1922 in the Valley of the Kings in west Thebes) by Howard Carter. The object, with the find number 261, is an exhibit at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, with the inventory number JE 61444. The Anubis Shrine was found behind the unwalled entrance, which lead into the so-called "Store Room". The shrine, with a figure of Anubis on top was facing towards the west. Behind it was the Canopic chest with the Pharaoh's canopic jars inside. The statue of the Anubis, depicted completely in form was attached to the roof of the shrine. This jackal lying on the shrine is made from wood, covered with black paint. The whites of the eyes are made from obsidian. The claws are in silver, more valuable than gold in Ancient Egypt. The Anubis statue was wrapped in a shirt, from the seventh regnal year of the Pharaoh Akhenaten, according to ink hieroglyphs on it. Underneath it was a very fine gauze, tied at the front of the neck. Between its front legs was an inscribed tablet with the name of Meritaten. An Anubis statue found in the tomb of the Pharaoh Horemheb is similar, that its insets are made with gemstones. The shrine is trapezoidal.Anubis Shrine – Anubis Shrine
16. Curse of the pharaohs – This curse, which does not differentiate between archaeologists, allegedly can cause bad luck, illness or death. They multiplied after Howard Carter's discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamun. Despite popular misconceptions, no curse was actually found inscribed in the Pharaoh's tomb. The evidence for curses relating to King Tutankhamun is considered to be so meager that Donald B. Redford viewed it as "unadulterated trap". Curses relating to tombs are extremely rare, possibly because the idea of such desecration was even dangerous to record in writing. They most frequently occur in private tombs of the Old Kingdom era. The tomb of Khentika Ikhekhi contains an inscription: "As for all men who shall enter this my tomb... impure... There will be judgment... an end shall be made for him... I shall seize his neck like a bird... I shall cast the fear of myself into him". Curses after the Old Kingdom era are less common though more severe, sometimes invoking the destruction of Sekhemet. Zahi Hawass quotes an example of a curse: "Cursed be those who disturb the rest of a Pharaoh. They that shall break the seal of this tomb shall meet death by a disease that no doctor can diagnose." The stormy seas did not abate until the mummies were thrown overboard. Zahi Hawass recalled that as a young archaeologist excavating at Kom Abu-Bellou he had to transport a number of artifacts from the Greco-Roman site.Curse of the pharaohs – The Royal Cobra (Uraeus), representing the protector goddess Wadjet, atop the mask of Tutankhamun.
17. King Tut (song) – "King Tut" is a novelty song performed by Steve Martin and the Toot Uncommons. It was released as a single in 1978, reached number 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Martin previewed the song during the April 22, 1978 episode of Saturday Night Live. The song was also included on Martin's album A Wild and Crazy Guy. The exhibit attracted approximately million visitors. In the Saturday Night Live performance of "King Tut," loyal subjects appease a joyful King Tut with kitchen appliances. An instrumental solo is delivered by player Lou Marini, who steps out of a sarcophagus -- painted gold -- to great laughter. The Steep Canyon Rangers recorded the song in a bluegrass version for their 2011 album, Rare Bird Alert. The song is the subject of in-depth analysis in Melani McAlister's Epic Encounters: Culture, Media, U.S. Interests in the Middle East, 1945–2000. Chicago radio WLS-AM, which gave the song much airplay, ranked "King Tut" as the 11th biggest hit of 1978.

18. The Curse of King Tut's Tomb (1980 film) – His financier, Lord Carnarvon discover after years of search the grave of Tut-Ench-Amun. Rumors about a curse that invites to anyone who disturbs the grave circulate in public. For even the unscrupulous art collector Sabastian is after the legendary gold sarcophagus. The Curse of the Pharaoh seems to be effective, for there will be a series of mysterious deaths. It was shot in England. The score was composed by American musician Gil Mellé. It was released as two-part film on 9 May 1980. A Region 2 release by Network DVD was released in 2011.

19. Tutenstein – The name is a portmanteau of Tutankhamun and Frankenstein. On October 2008, a movie entitled Tutenstein: Clash of the Pharaohs aired on Discovery Kids. I like reading about history and mythology. And the past is full of surprises." PorchLight Entertainment, based in California, has won Emmys for the first and second seasons of the series. Irish company Telegael, based in An Spidéal, Co Galway, also won an Emmy Award for the second season. The Scepter of Was being portrayed as an magic wand is fictional, though the Was itself is a Egyptian symbol. Unlike Tutankhamun, who died at the age of 18, this Tut died when he was 10. On the other hand, Tutenstein is drawn with a cleft lip, just like the real Tutankhamun. Egyptologist Dr. Kasia Szpakowska served as a consultant to the series. DVD Verdict said "To be fair, as a product of the Discovery Channel, the producers have tried something slightly different with Tutenstein. It's educational children's programming, the attempt of an educational station to compete with more popular stations. Each episode incorporates some educational tidbits: explaining aspects of ancient Egyptian mythology and history. Unfortunately, the learning gets a bit mixed up with all the other nonsense." The Sydney Morning Herald wrote "It's The Mummy for kids...Tutenstein – Discovery
20. The Curse of King Tut's Tomb (2006 film) – The Curse of King Tut's Tomb is a 2006 fantasy adventure television film directed by Russell Mulcahy, starring Casper Van Dien, Leonor Varela, Jonathan Hyde. However, the tradeoff is that he must remain in the Underworld. In 1922, an archaeologist, is searching for the last piece of the tablet, believed to be in Tutankhamun's tomb. They were seized from him by his rival, Morgan Sinclair. Sinclair uses the Hellfire Council's influence to cause him to lose his job. Fremont is undaunted by the challenges he faces. Despite their efforts, the last piece still falls into the hands of the Hellfire Council. Sinclair assembles all four pieces in the tomb, unleashes Set and the demons of the Underworld. He also gets rid of the Hellfire Council's members later. The boy pharaoh is too weak to help them. Meanwhile, Sinclair is absorbed by Set, who then attacks Fremont. At the critical moment, her wish is granted. Tutankhamun springs to life, brings Fremont and Barakat safely out of the Underworld. Before leaving, Tutankhamun tells them that "all things are as they should have been". They leave the tomb just before it closes by itself.The Curse of King Tut's Tomb (2006 film) – DVD cover
