Magnificent 70mm - Lawrence of Arabia

Spend your winter in widescreen with films that should be seen as big and as loud as possible, in glorious 70mm: Lawrence of Arabia, the greatest of all great, sprawling epics, released 55 years ago on this day.

New! 70mm! Print!

David Lean's Academy Award-winning account of the legendary T. E. Lawrence's efforts to unify the nomadic desert tribes against the Ottoman Turks during World War I is equal parts war film and existential romance, as the arid expanses of the desert draw the British scholar and adventurer into its beckoning, soul-stirring emptiness. Starring Alec GuinnessOmar Sharif,Anthony QuinnClaude Rains, and of course Peter O'Toole, who became an instant star as the eccentric and inscrutable Lawrence.

All screenings will include a 20-minute intermission.
