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.
