LAWRENCE OF ARABIA

By FilmFlan
Written October 05, 2012
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.

Lawrence of Arabia - Wow!

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!

Lawrence of Arabia

This was the first time I had seen Lawrence of Arabia since its original showing in 1962. Yep, fifty years ago! The terms "epic:" and "sweeping" could not be more appropriate when applied to this film. Yes, were it made today, it would probably be riddled with hi-tech effects, a more contemporary sound track. etc. Also, the infamous scene - way back then - of Jose Ferrar's ripping off Peter O'Toole's shirt, followed up by lusty leers would have been more vividly acted out. It didn't need more "realism:" We all got it back then and still do. Although slightly technically dated, this is film making of the highest order. Anyone who truly loves movies will truly love this remarkable film.

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.
