LAWRENCE OF ARABIA in 70mm

We are so very, very thrilled to be bringing back the epic LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, presented in glorious giant-screen 7Omm for THREE SHOWS ONLY! Screening from a recently-struck and restored 7Omm print, this is a film that must be experienced on our Ritz Cinema giant screen, in our 8OO seat, 8O year old art deco original cinema, exhibiting from our state of the art Cinemeccania Victoria 8 7Omm projector with epic, earth-shattering 6-track DTS sound.

This is pure cinema.

A timeless cinema classic, director David Lean's Oscar-winning 1962 film was truly intended to be seen exclusively on the big screen -- with its lush cinematography, epic story, and Peter O'Toole's larger than life performance as the academic-cum-desert warrior.

Based on the true story of T.E. Lawrence, a young British army officer whose recon mission in the Arabian desert turns into an all-out heroic struggle to unite the scattered, warring desert tribes against the encroaching Turkish forces during WWI. LAWRENCE OF ARABIA is an expertly crafted portrait of clashing cultures, and of a man driven to the brink of madness by conflicting loyalties and his own unquenchable ambition.

The film will be presented in prestige 7Omm roadshow style, & the run time includes a 4 minute overture, a 15minute intermission & a 4 minute entr’acte.

Screening
Friday 27th July, 6.30pm
Saturday 28th July, 2.30pm
Sunday 29th July, 5.00pm
