Seeing David Lean's epic masterpiece restored and on a big screen was a memorable experience. Nothing like it in the last few years. Stunning visuals and complex, fascinating story. Top cast. Extras enhanced experience

Lawrence of Arabia - Painful Extras

By andalou
Written August 28, 2014
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.

LAWRENCE OF ARABIA

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.

Masterpiece

A grand way to spend 4 hours, watching the 4K digital full-length movie on a big screen instead of the shortened version on a television screen that we are all familiar with. Awesome cinematography and all of it shot on location with real actors, no CGI! But the advertorials advertorials and newsreel clips and useless interviews shown before the movie were annoying and tiresome - please get rid of those.

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!
