How to tame a fiendish, locust-unleashing, more than 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy?

Here, kitty, kitty.

The Library continues this summer’s Off the Wall series of rooftop film screenings, featuring cats in non-starring but invariably scene-chewing roles, with 1999’s The Mummy (PG-13, 124 min.). The action-adventure hit thrusts American adventurer Brendan Fraser and librarian Rachel Weisz into an archeological dig that awakens the remains of an ancient high priest, Imhotep … who’s not exactly a cat person.
