Lawrence of Arabia

Fabulous experience. Movies like this will never be made again. Sir David Lean was a master and we are fortunate to have Lawrence of Arabia re-mastered. Production and interviews included added to the movie. This is a 'don't miss' experience no matter how often you have seen Lawrence of Arabia over the years.

Superb - An honor to the legendary film and director, and honor to a legendary performance

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.

One of cinema's most extraordinary films

There is more than enough written about the excellence of David Lean's masterpiece, "Lawrence of Arabia," and the Fathom Events showing last night at the Hoffman Theaters in Alexandria, VA was a great setting for its 50th anniversary observance. The 4K digitalization of the film was remarkable and I found even more to appreciate in it as the movie unfolded. One caveat: the Hoffman complex holds multiple theaters, so the one next door to us was showing the latest "Resident Evil" movie. Unfortunately, several quieter moments in "Lawrence," such as the initial meeting at the well between Lawrence & Ali, were ruined by the fighting of lycans, vampires, zombies, etc., that could be heard through the walls. Theater complexes should try to separate special showings such as "Lawrence" from other films so such sound bleed-through is lessened.

David Lean's panoramic production of P.E. Lwrence has triggered my need to read more on the man and on his historical impact durling the last days of the Ottoman Empire....

Lawrence of Arabia: What a show!

My first Fathom Event.The print and sound were so pristine it took my breath away. My theater was quite crowded. This was a once in a lifetime chance to see the movie the way it was meant to be seen and heard. I don't care how big your TV set is, you can never duplicate the feeling in a theater full of appreciative enthusiasts. Now if they would only do the same kind of restoration with SPARTACUS, it would bring peace to the world as we know it.
