REEL FILM - exclusive shows presented in 35mm & 70mm

"The language of cinema is universal, in a time of great divisions, conflicts, transformations, it's really crucial to preserve and share our cultural patrimonies and to ensure that this universal language will speak to future generations around the world."
- Martin Scorsese

We at The Ritz Cinema are massive believers in keeping "true film" (i.e. 35mm and 70mm celluloid film) alive in the 21st century. In this age of digital cinema, shrinking screens and low resolution, celluloid film is an endangered species.

So as we are all huge film fans, we are doing our best to keep film alive by sourcing super rare and recently unseen 35mm and 70mm film prints to present to new audiences and allow a new generation of film fans to experience the sharp pictures and epic sounds of celluloid film.

See our list of exclusive 35mm and 70mm screenings below, and come help us support and give new life to this incredible medium.

Lawrence of Arabia - 70mm

  • Cast
  • Peter O'Toole, Alec Guinness, Anthony Quinn
  • Director
  • David Lean
  • Synopsis
  • Presented in glorious giant-screen 70mm for THREE SHOWS ONLY!

    Screening from the recently-struck restored 70mm print.

    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.
