We deliberately never saw the movie after the first time, (TV just doesn't cut those camel scenes) and had forgotten how wonderful it is. Fabulous scenery made even more fantastic by the re-make, superb cast, and a great story. Elicited the "they don't make them like this any more" comment about movies generally.
We could have done without a lot of the pre-movie chat which seemed to be redundant. Played to an almost-empty house -- too bad it wasn't better advertised.
I wouldn't rate this movie for viewing by kids as there are a few ultra-gory scenes and one other that could be questionable.
All in all, thrilled with what we saw.

Date night with the wife. A wonderful remastered version of the classic David Lean film. Stunning print quality enhanced the sweeping desert panoramas and action scenes. In theater experience a trip back in time. Also saw "Singing in the Rain" a few months ago when it was screened. Looking forward to more opportunities to see classic films the "old fashioned" way.

The movie was great especailly on the big screen. As someone who had not seen the movie before the introduction by Martin Scorcese, while informative, had many plot spoilers that took away the impact. Yes, younger people went to see the movie!

One of my favorite movies. This classic tells an important story of which many are unaware, and sheds light on our circumstances today. This film is full of fine actors who were able to portray their characters with finesse and subtle innuendo.

I really didn't like it. I found it very long and boring. I was extremely uncomfortable sitting all that time and was tempted to get up and walk out of the showing. Besides, it cost me $19 for the parking which I found outrageous. That cost plus the cost of the film $17. made for a very expensive afternoon. Never again!
