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.

This film must be seen on the big screen. The landscape is so huge and a major character in the film. Great acting by great actors. If you want to know more about the western conflict in the Middle East before oil this movie will increase your understanding.

What nerve! Movie never shown. Apparently hard-drive didn't work so after 30 minutes of sitting and waiting received a refund and a sorry. Will never participate in Fathom Events again.

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.

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!
