Lawrence of Arabia - Painful Extras

Whoever set this up showing truly didn't think about their audience. I learned about the showing thru Fandango and was so very exited to see this movie. I was under the impression that since I was choosing an IMAX theater it would be shown on IMAX. There was nothing on the purchase page that indicated that it would be shown on a much, much smaller screen. Prior to showing the movie they ran a trailer for the movie I had already purchased. Next came the painful and long Martin Scorsese overview. This sucked because I had NEVER seen the movie and he stupidly mentions key points and shows key scenes of the movie. Next up was grainy footage from the release date. I showed up on time for a 3 hour movie on a mid-week night and had to sit thru 32 minutes of crap. Why this stuff wasn't left for the end is really beyond me. The movie was wonderful but they should have left the extras for the end.

What a thrill to again see LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, with an all male cast...most of whom have aged beyond belief, once seeing them as young and handsome actors. This is a real piece of poignant history...the perils of the desert and the compelling struggles. LAWRENCE is so well-played by Peter O'Toole...done with brilliance, along with Omar Shariff, and others....all brilliantly and valiantly cast and acted. The gripping story is filled with action, and so true to the believable, unlike most modern films. It was a wonderful revival and I am so glad I got the announcement from Fandango. It was well-worth the 2 hour drive and taking a friend who also appreciated it so much.

I first saw this movie in the 60s shortly after it came out. To see it again, almost 50 years later - beautifully restored, was amazing. Stunning visual imagery - fantastic soundtrack - award winning acting - fabulous directing. One of the best movies ever!

I had never seen this movie all the way through. Bits & pieces here and there. However, it is my husband's all time favorite movie, so, when I saw that it was going to be at the theater, I surprised him with tickets. Turns out I absolutely loved it!!

excellent technical quality to the movie and sound. a movie classic that soars above all others. I saw it when it was first shown 50 years ago - the digital restoration is great. I only wish I could have the same opportunity for restoration :)
