Lawrence of Arabia

Lawrence of Arabia Rides Again At Cinematheque


In case you were worried, Cinematheque Ontario will deliver a second screening of David Lean's 1962, and very very long, masterpiece Lawrence of Arabia, after the first showing in late November sold out faster than hotcakes. Like two weeks ago.

My source at the Cinematheque box office says they've already moved about a quarter of their tickets for the second screening on December 7th.

In addition to the ongoing David Lean retrospective, Cinematheque Ontario will be screening all fifteen intense hours of Berlin Alexanderplatz over three days, starting December 12th. There's also the monumental and ongoing retrospective of Nagisa Oshima's ouvre, which blogTO's own Danielle D'Ornellas beat me to the punch on last week.

Oh, and happy Barack Obama Day.
