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!!

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.

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 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 :)
