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.

I was too young to see this movie when it came out so I've only seen it on TV. The first time was on a regular square TV, and the second was in letterbox on the same square TV. When I saw it in letterbox I was blown away with the amazing vistas, so I had to see it when it came out in the theatres. I took the afternoon off work to see this movie and I can only say BREATHTAKINGLY AMAZING. Glad I took the time off work to see 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 :)

This movie: "...Lawrence of Arabia..." was more 'EPIC' than I remember so many years ago!
BUT...it was NOT worth the $12.50 ticket price...And, what the " Bloody Hell " is a convenience fee? ! ?
"...Semi-Starving college student..."

SOME MOVIES ARE MEANT TO BE SEEN ON THE BIG SCREEN, AT LEAST ONCE. LAWRENCE OF ARABIA IS ONE OF THOSE MOVIES. THE DIGITAL ENHANCEMENT WAS TERRIFIC BUT THE REAL THRILL WAS SEEING THE GRANDNESS OF THE LOCATION FILMING ITSELF. TO THINK THAT THIS WAS FILMED ON LOCATION WITH ACTUAL PEOPLE IS MIND BOGGLING. BUT MOST IMPRESSIVE WAS THE FACT THAT PETER O'TOOLE'S ACTING WOULD BE CONSIDER EXTRAORDINARY FOR A SEASONED ACTOR BUT WHEN YOU CONSIDER IT WAS HIS FIRST MAJOR SCREEN ROLE IT IS MIND BLOWING PERFORMANCE. OVERALL, THIS FILM HOLDS UP BEAUTIFULLY AND IS A FILM EVERYONE SHOULD SEE AT LEAST ONCE AND IF POSSIBLE, ON THE BIG SCREEN!
