'Lawrence of Arabia' Returns to Theaters for One Night Only

Back when Steven Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark had returned to movie screens, we put together a wish list of classic Hollywood epics that we’d love to see in a theater once again. Casablanca, Citizen Kane, Lawrence of Arabia and Psycho were a few of the suggestions bandied around the Fandango offices. Today, we learn that one of those “dream” selections is coming to life.
 
David Lean’s luscious historical drama Lawrence of Arabia returns to theaters for one night only on Thursday, Oct. 4 as part of the film’s 50th Anniversary event. A digitally restored print will be presented by Sony Pictures Entertainment in 4K, having been cleaned up by the wizards at Sony Pictures’ Colorworks, working from Lean's original 65mm negative. 
 
This special event features an exclusive introduction from Lawrence of Arabia star and Academy Award nominee Omar Sharif. The event will include newsreel footage of the New York premiere as stars arrive on the red carpet, as well as footage of King Hussein visiting the film set in Aqaba where he met Lean, Sam Spiegel and Peter O’Toole. If that’s not enough, Martin Scorsese also will appear (on screen) to discuss the overarching themes of Lawrence of Arabia and its influence on other iconic films.
 
Lean’s film dominated the Academy Awards telecast in 1963, scoring seven Oscar wins including Best Picture, Director, Cinematography (which is part of the reason we want to see it big again), Editing and Sound. O’Toole and Sharif also were nominated for their outstanding work in Lean’s classic film. 
 
Tickets for Lawrence of Arabia 50th Anniversary Event: Digitally Restored are available here, as well as at participating theater box offices. The event will be presented using new digital cinema projection systems in more than 630 select movie theaters around the country.
