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.

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 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.

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 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!!
