A great classic restored to be even better

Beautifully restored film and such a great one! This movie is 227 minutes long but it is so entertaining and Sharif, Quinn, Guinness and obviously O'Toole are just so tremendous that the hours fly by. There is a 15-minute intermission but you'll want to get back to the story as quickly and possible.

Glad I saw it

I'd never seen this classic film before, but always wanted to. Now was a perfect time, with the remastered visuals and audio, and all of the historic information and other extras. Definitely worth the $15 and the 4 hours.

Though I was one of the youngest people in the audience, was a joy to see! Sweeping visuals, single plot in the story, not one woman in the film! Amazing acting, so great seeing it as it should be seen...on the big screen! Will catch as many classics as I can at the movie theatre. Awesome.

Fantastically dirty

Seeing it on the big screen really shows that they were in...a desert! Either the big picture...or the restoration...or both...makes you almost feel like you're there. Another thing the big screen lends, which you don't get on the DVDs, is the scale of the locations: those rock mountains in the desert were huge! I am so glad I saw my favorite movie on the big screen. It was spectacular.

Lawrence of Arabia 50th Anniversary

As the Brits would say, "Bloody marvelous!" One of the greatest films of all time looks and sounds better than ever. If you missed the big-screen showing, do yourself a favor and watch the upcoming Blu-ray on the largest home screen possible. Beautiful photography, amazing performances, and the cinema's finest music score make Lawrence of Arabia as close to "must see" as movies get.
