I have seen Lawrence of Arabia a number of times, but only on television. To see it on the big screen was a great experience. The digital restoration was incredible - it looked like the movie was filmed yesterday instead of 50 years ago. Truly amazing.

My wife and I met 4 years ago and what a great way to celebrate that meeting. We could not stop talking (after the film) about the plot, score and cinematography. What an enjoyable experience. Thank you Fathom, and than you Fandango and AMC. We had a great night at the movies

I first saw Lawrence of Arabia in Apr. '63 when I was a girl. Of course I fell in love with Peter O'Toole and the film itself. All-time favorite; I've loved it since then.
The 50th Anniversary Event last night - Blu-Ray, 4K remastered - is beautiful. On the large screen again. One of the (few) truly great classics of all time; and the beauty of what Sony/Blu-Ray/4K has done is just remarkable in every way. Since the 1988-'89 restoration was magical I couldn't even imagine that this would be - yes - beyond magical.
The film is so clear, so lovely that - no matter how many times I have seen it - it is like seeing it better & greater than ever before. Nothing compares with it & never will.
The clarity & beauty of Mr. Lean's iconic masterpiece; the beauty of a great actor in his destined, iconic role has truly brought so much joy to a woman with such happy, personal memories of years ago.
Thank you very much.

I bought a ticket for the one-time theater performance at Regal's Westbury Stadium Theatre in Nassau County, NY for 1:00 pm, Thursday, Oct. 4. After watching and waiting about 30 minutes through several promotional features, the performance started with the musical overture, which we seemed to hear twice over. The actual motion picture never started and we were asked by a secretary, to wait while the projectionist tried to fix a problem. Then the theater manager appeared about 1:45 pm and reported that it would take more time to make sre the "hard disk" would start, but that we could ask to see some other picture. One person asked for a refund and he said Yes. I asked when the picture would end because I would have to leave by 4:45 pm to make an appointment in NYC. I was told if the movie soon started it would not end until 5:30 pm, so I had to leave and asked for a refund. When I received a refund at the Ticket Office, I was told the disk had not been downloaded before the showing.

Viewing this epic movie on the big screen after being digitally remastered was a most amazing experience. A movie of this magnitude was meant to be seen on the big screen. The actors give compelling perfomances. The cinematography, directing and the musical score were breathtaking! I look forward to when my grandchildren are old enough to watch this movie and hope that we will get the opportunity again to see it on the big screen. Thanks TCM and your partners for all that you do.
