Seeing this great film at the iconic Egyptian Theater was such a treat. I've wanted to see Lawrence of Arabia for years but didn't want to see it on a small screen. My patience was well rewarded! This film is so beautifully shot. Really, if you can see it on the big screen, you must!

There were technical difficulties with starting the movie, but once it started, I thought it was beautifully shot, clever dialogue, and great characters/actors. I didn't know it was going to be as funny and witty as it was. I was also surprised and grateful for the intermission due to the film being 3 1/2 hours long.

What a classic movie from the big budget era with glamorous and beautiful stars like Peter O'Toole and Omar Sharif. It is a historical story of modern times that still resonates with current events in the Middle East. I loved the big sound, the big screen, the big colors and the big story. It appears not much has changed in the Mid East since the early 1900's. It was also a sad story of a man with huge ideals who is built up by those seeking to use him and then broken in the end. I think everyone should see this movie at least once.

Lawrence at the Egyptian

Wow! To see a restored and remixed 70 mm print of this movie was absolutely amazing. This experience far outpaced any impression I had of this movie from previous viewings. Unfortunately, the Egyptian Theatre didn't match the brilliance of the film in their handling of the presentation. The movie started 25 minutes late and the intermission was a full 30 minutes! I can understand that selling intermission popcorn and drinks creates much needed revenue, but when the movie being screened is over 3 hours in length some serious though should be given to the amount of time the viewing audience spends - not watching the movie. It was very difficult getting back in touch with the story and Lawrence's journey after a 30 minute intermission. Great film and great performance by the late Peter O'Toole.

Glorious!!! My excitement and appreciation for this spectacular film has only grown stronger over the years since I first saw it in 1962. The casting was inspired, the desert scenery and cinematography was awe-inspiring, the terse and gritty dialogue couldn't have been better, and the sets were magnificent! There was even a dash of humor here and there to lighten the mood. From glory to gore, it has all the elements one could imagine to make it the classic that it is. It was the fastest 4 hours I've ever spent in a theater. I can't wait to see it again!
