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 of Arabia seen at the Angelika Mosaic Movie Theater - Fairfax, VA

First, if you've never seen Lawrence of Arabia - GO SEE IT! It Truly is an EPIC - one of those movies that everyone should see at least once in their life - preferably in 70mm BIG SILVER SCREEN! It's said to be THE BEST MOVIE EVER MADE - and when you see it, then you'll understand. Seeing literally thousands of extra's racing across the desert and real steam trains being derailed - realize that these scenes weren't done in CGI - they were real - as real as T. E. Lawrence was real. Second, I want to thank the Angelika Mosaic Theater in Fairfax, VA for showing it. It's a beautiful movie theater and reasonably priced ticket ($7.00). Most theaters only show current run movies, so to be able to see this CLASSIC on the big screen again with all the modern sound and conviences was a real treat. I'll not soon forget the experience. so - GO SEE IT - even if you buy the Blu-Ray and watch it at home, it's worth it. And by the way the Blu-Ray edition is wonderful.

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!
